The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Triangle Community Center is Fairfield County's leading provider of programming and resources to nurture growth and connection within the LGBTQ community.
Triangle Community Center (TCC) is home to more than two dozen, free groups that meet weekly, bi-weekly or monthly at the center. Groups include peer support, recovery, older adult daytime programming, crafts, sober social events and youth groups. TCC's team of highly trained client advocates assist community members with social service navigation, food, drop-in services, document updates, emergency financial assistance, healthcare navigation and housing navigation at its Drop-In Center in Norwalk and at its satellite office at the Center for Family Justice in Bridgeport. TCC works to make local area providers more welcoming and affirming through education with its LGBTQ Training Institute. TCC also produces CT's largest Pride event each June, Fairfield County's Pride in the Park in Norwalk.
Triangle Community Center serves over 300 individuals who utilize its programs and services on a regular basis as well as over 5000 members of the Fairfield County community who attend a TCC program or event at least once a year. While our primary service area is Fairfield County, we often see people travel from Westchester, New Haven, and Litchfield counties to attend one of the programs we offer. TCC’s key target population is the LGBTQ community in Fairfield County, however, we welcome all who seek our services and have many clients who do not identify as LGBTQ.
