With a long track record, Transitional Living Centers continues to lovingly provide person-centered care for individuals while they live as independently as possible while receiving whichever supports they may need. A family owned and operated business, TLC started in 1964 when Robert and Wilma Trivanovich, a home-builder and a nurse, decided to put their shared expertise to work.

In 1965, they opened a nursing home in Brunswick, Ohio (now Willowood Care Center) and quickly expanded both the building and the business to include 96 beds for individuals with intellectual disabilities in 1972.

In the early 90’s, TLC built 12 small group homes in Valley City and Brunswick. Today, these homes are staffed 24/7 for our clients from 5 to 80 years old.

In 2009, we opened Riverside Habilitation Center, a day programming facility specially designed to meet the needs of the individuals living here at TLC. Located in Valley City, RHC was designed with our individuals in mind. The 14,000 square foot building has multiple spacious activity rooms each providing active treatment and programming for our individuals. Examples of these rooms include an arts and crafts room, a music room, a game room, and a spa/salon.
