TGNCK Family Portrait Outreach

TGNCK understands that not every family is in a position to allocate funding for family portraits. We are providing families with the opportunity to create their own priceless family portrait. Appointments are approved only in 15 minute increments. Families must arrive dressed and ready to be photographed. Each approved family will receive a soft copy of the selected pose and one 8x10 that will be mailed to them.

Trends to Transition: S.M.A.R.T. Goals for Mentoring Women & Girls in Transition

Thanks to our amazing sponsors, 1831 DC, we are hosting a Women's Empowerment strategic planning session...TGNCK style! We need best practices, ideas, methods of approach, and key areas of focus from local positive, successful, and community focused women who care about adding value to and preparing women in transition and our youth for the future. This is a great way to give back, meet similarly situated women, and reclaim your time on a beautiful Saturday!

This event is free. We do ask those in positions to give back to donate GIFT CARDS to assist TGNCK with providing food and/or essential hygiene kits to the elderly, displaced, underserved, unsheltered homeless, survivors of domestic violence and disabled Veterans.

Annual Closure

Annual Closure

TGNCK operates all year to service those in need throughout Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC Metropolitan. We officially close from mid-December to February 1st, after distributing coats, blankets and Christmas gifts to identified families within our network. For emergencies please email tgnck@outlook.com

In February, TGNCK will resume its mission and conduct business by appointment only. TGNCK is operated by professionals who maintain full-time careers; however, we have mastered a process of responding to all emails and coordinating pick-up and drop-off dates for those in need.  

In the event we overlook or miss your communique, we truly do apologize and ask that you follow-up with us.
