Job Description

Triangle Community Center is Fairfield County's leading provider of LGBT programming and resources to nurture growth and connection within the community. 

Triangle Community Center (TCC) is the only organization focused exclusively on the LGBTQ community in Fairfield County, which is a community at much greater risk of isolation, discrimination, suicide, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS than its peers. TCC has been in existence since 1990 and until 2013 operated with no full time staff. TCC hosts groups and programs that provide health and human services to the LGBTQ community in Fairfield County. We work closely with Mid-Fairfield AIDS Project and Circle Care Center on HIV/AIDS related outreach, testing initiatives, and creating a more informed and healthy LGBTQ community.
