Tidwell Social Work & Consulting Inc. (TSWC) was started by Kathy Tidwell in December 2000, initially as a private practice serving Medicaid, Medicare and other insurance clients. In its first year of operations, Tidwell Social Work Services and Consulting under the management of Kathy, established referral sources and training contracts which at that time included Head Start and Idaho State University (conducting statewide suicide prevention trainings).
On October 1st 2014, the clinic started operations as a Nonprofit under the name of Tidwell Social Work Services and Consulting, Inc (TSWSC). Since then, we have significantly expanded our Community Building and Healing Efforts to include initiatives such as Women Empowerment, Family Services, Self-Help, Pay It Forward, and Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities (HROC).
