Support For Local and Global Charities
Dr. Janet Schrodi and Dr. Yann Schrodi also undertake charity to help local and global communities. An association with the TLC for Smiles family is also indirect support for such charities: a member of society who feels concerned and gives a helping hand. World Vision, Open Arms Pregnancy Clinic, and Forever Found are the charities we support.
Forever Found For Trafficked Victims
The Christian organization Forever Found, based in Simi Valley, is committed to the rescue, restoration, and prevention of child trafficking and its victims. The organization rescues children sold into long-term prostitution and also children who are “at risk.” Forever Found, after rescuing a child, ensures extensive support including medical, housing, emotional, and spiritual care. The children receive education, vocational training, and given guidance in supporting themselves as young adults.
Yann and Janet Schrodi provide support for four children via Forever Found. The children are from countries that include Thailand, India, Ethiopia, and the US. Moreover, TLC for Smiles has generated thousands of dollars sponsoring tables at for Forever Found’s annual banquet and also by donating orthodontics care to the organization’s yearly silent auction.
TLC for Smiles is involved with World Vision. It’s a Christian humanitarian aid organization and operates by weeding out the seeds of poverty and initiating steps for change. World Vision offers aid to poor communities and involves local leaders to generate solutions to improve wealth via farming, provide food and clean water, and extend children’s education and medical care. Janet and Yann Schrodi sponsor three children in Burundi, Palestine, and Sierra Leone.
We also spur tram members of TLC for Smiles to offer charitable contributions to the organization. Upon reaching yearly goals, Janet and Yann Schrodi make donations in the name of team members who can decide how to spend the donations. Past contributions include purchasing goats, chickens, food and clothing, digging wells for children and families across the world, and seeds for crops. Contribution by TLC for Smiles team members has resulted in raising thousands of dollars for World Vision and helped improve the lives of children globally.
Open Arms Pregnancy Clinic
The clinic offers support to women and men dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. Its services include free pregnancy testing, ultrasound services, and counseling. When a couple or a woman decides to affirm life, Open Arms Pregnancy Clinic supports them through resources including social services, resources for the baby, housing, and parenting classes. In support, TLC for Smiles sponsors tables at the clinic’s annual banquet.
Dentistry Practice With A Charitable Mindset
Yann and Janet Schrodi share a vision of being a significant influence for local and worldwide communities. It’s a vision that our associate doctors and employees support. To give an example, last year for Janet’s birthday, the office, instead of a conventional gift, made an ample donation to Forever Found in her name. Moreover, during a recent office Christmas party, the team at TLC for Smiles donated money generously for dental supplies, which was utilized for children’s oral hygiene and nutrition program in India.
We take pride in having such an understanding team, which shares the view of having a purpose in life. Once you are part of the TLC for Smiles family, you will feel happy about your positive involvement in causes near your communities and abroad.
