Triangle Community Center (TCC) graciously invites you to its 11th Annual Visionary Party: Mardi Gras. The Visionary Party is TCC's largest annual fundraising event-- and this year we are putting a special focus on our services and advocacy for youth and young adults in the LGBTQ community. With your support, you will join hundreds of others in ensuring that we have the resources we need to support programs at TCC that help young adults who are homeless, and will sustain our continued programs and services. At the Visionary Party, you will be able to support your community-- in a festive party atmosphere that will bring you to the opulent and vibrant Bourbon Street.

What is TCC?
Triangle Community Center (TCC) is Fairfield County's one and only LGBTQ community center. TCC is home to over two-dozen drop in programs, which house youth groups, recovery programs, peer support groups, and so much more. In 2015, we began our case management program to help people in need. Our case management team meets people who need our support and helps them to create a care plan that often includes TCC-provided resources such as: financial assistance, housing, navigation, probate assistance, and referrals. TCC also provides LGBTQ cultural competency trainings for businesses, nonprofits, educators, and law enforcement in Fairfield County so that they are better prepared to work with members of our community. Our clients are primarily low to no income LGBTQ young adults and older adults from Bridgeport, Norwalk and Stamford. TCC does serve all of Fairfield County and offers programming in Greater Danbury. TCC is participating in the statewide effort to end youth and young adult homelessness by 2020. On any given night there are 3000 homeless young adults in CT and 1000 of them identify as being LGBTQ. To that end, this year, TCC launched its Young Adult Services program with a new space here in Norwalk to get young adults off the street and to give them a safe environment in which to connect and thrive. 

What is the Visionary Party?
The  Visionary Party is TCC's one big fundraising event of the year. Each year the event raises approximately 20% of the operating funds TCC requires to provide our current level of programming and services to the community. The funds are donated by generous and supportive members of our community as well as exceptional corporate partners. The event includes a sit down dinner for 300 people, community awards given to those who have served the LGBTQ community locally with distinction, spotlights of TCC's programs and services, silent auction, live auction, and a night full of entertainment and dancing. Each year the event features a special theme, and this year our theme will be Mardi Gras.
