The Treatment and Learning Center
Improves lives and expands possibilities for 2,000 individuals with special needs in the greater Washington DC area through diagnostic, therapeutic, educational and employment programs.
Federal and postal employees and military personnel can give at work through the Combined Federal Campaign. Starting in 2017, they can make their donation or pledge through a central CFC website. This new website is one of several changes that are greatly lowering the CFC's costs, which means nearly all your donation will go to the charities you support. Here's more on the CFC's changes.
To support this charity navigate to the CFC site by clicking "Give through the CFC Now". From there click "Find a CFC Charity." In the "Charity" field, put in the charity's name or, if that doesn't work, its CFC number.
At Treatment and Learning Centers’s Katherine Thomas School in Rockville, we tailor programming for each child. In some cases, we prepare young people to graduate and go to college or work; in others, we work with young people with multiple disabilities to give them the best possible opportunity to lead happy, productive and independent adult lives.
Donations from individuals allow TLC to continue to provide very high quality services to a very diverse group of children.
If you can, please support us through your workplace: CFC #35945, United Way #9861. In other workplace campaigns, you can write in our name and EIN: 52-0607924.
