Welcome TLC is a cross-sector network housed in the Toledo Lucas County Public Library in partnership with Lucas County and LISC Toledo (Toledo Local Initiatives Support Corporation). Welcome TLC’s mission is to build a more welcoming and inclusive community for immigrants, refugees and people of diverse cultures that supports a vibrant civic, economic and social fabric for all.
Welcome TLC was founded in 2014 with resolutions of support by Toledo City Council and the Lucas County Commissioners, and is governed by a steering committee of community partners and leaders, including immigrants and refugees. In 2019, leadership of Welcome TLC transitioned to the Library with the hiring of a full-time Librarian.
Are you an immigrant, refugee, or international newcomer interested in finding out about community, economic, educational and social resources? Maybe you want to find a way to celebrate the diverse cultures that make Toledo and Lucas County a wonderful place to visit and live. Or you may be interested in learning a new language. Let us connect you to information and resources.
We are here to help!
