TLC Receiving MCDHH Outstanding Organization of the Year 2019

Celebrating 50 Years of Inspiring Knowledge, Opportunity, Power

A Note to our Valued TLC Community:

This spring, we were planning a Legislative Open House and Community Recognition Breakfast to celebrate and honor our foundation and corporate supporters, transition employer partners and community partners. Due to the unprecedented nationwide health crisis, we at TLC knew the safest decision we could make is to postpone these events.

We want to thank our committed sponsors for offering to extend their support instead to our 50th Anniversary Celebration, which we are extending all year long over the course of numerous communications and philanthropy campaigns. This will allow us to continue to celebrate 50 years of success since TLC first opened its doors. We value the commitment of our community partners for their recognition of TLC's impact on Massachusetts and greater New England. Join us as we reflect on the impact of TLC on individuals, families and our broader community over the past 50 years, pay tribute to the countless individuals who make our mission possible, and share our plans for thriving into the future.  

When a need is presented, we at TLC pull together, and we work diligently and relentlessly to make sure we adapt, change, and meet that need.  But we are a non-profit agency, and cannot do this work alone.  We have seen firsthand how so many individuals, organizations and businesses are working together for the greater good.  We need your support now more than ever.

Thank You to Our Sponsors

Fifty years ago, inspired by his son, Warren Schwab envisioned a school for deaf and hard of hearing children grounded in respect and enjoyment, where language and communication were paramount.  Warren dedicated personal resources and countless hours to making this dream a reality, engaging teachers, volunteers, donors, and collaborators.  The movement grew, and today, The Learning Center for the Deaf is a nationally-recognized resource for deaf and hard of hearing children and adults, with services benefiting over 2,000 children, adults and families and 150 organizations annually.
