Tri-County Community Resources, Inc. (TCCR) is a grassroots organization made up of local businesses, agencies, and community members who are dedicated to connecting residents to critical services, resources, and supports, with the ultimate goal of improving the health and well-being of all who live in the tri-counties.
In 2015, as a result of the dedication and hard work of TCCR, in collaboration with area residents, advocacy organizations, local businesses, and community leaders, Tri-County Community Resource Center opened its doors. The Resource Center acts as a one-stop "connecting hub" between those in need and existing community supports. TCCR assists by supporting the daily operations of the Resource Center and by identifying gaps in local services and supports, advocating to make these resources available locally.
Tri-County Community Resource Center currently receives no dedicated state or federal funding. Partnership for Strong Families is a key partner who assists by providing one full-time Resource Center Manager and one part-time administrative support personnel. Additional overhead and programming expenses are sustained through the generosity of community partner donations.
