We are a center where people with general and emergency needs can immediately find resources that are in the surrounding areas. We connect people to the various services and resources in the community.
Tri-County Family Care Center educates and empowers families and individuals to maintain stability through life skill programs, service and support to gain self-reliance.
All families and individuals in our community are strong and self-reliant.
Tri-County Family Care Center (TCFCC) was established in May 1995 as a Resource & Referral agency. We are not a crisis center for life threatening situations. TCFCC serves as a networking and coordinating center to connect individuals and families with resources to get the help and support they seek for general and emergency needs.
Since 1995, we have implemented a multitude of programs and services! We have served more than 10,000 clients since January 2000!
The first year, Executive Director, Sarah Dillon volunteered her time to get the Center going. The second year there were two part-time staff. For the first two years, our organization served 50 clients and had a budget of $115. In 2018, services were provided to over 400 people and the budget increased to $346,936.00, with 8 staff (7 full-time and 1 part-time) and 14 committed grantors supporting our efforts. Tri-County changed from being just a referral agency to an agency providing multiple programs, direct services and referrals. We now serve as a networking and coordinating center to connect individuals and families with various resources and area agencies.
In 2004, Tri-County became a member of the state-wide Family Resource Center Association. With her great success in starting Tri-County, Ms. Dillon spoke at a national gathering of Family Support America about establishing programs in rural areas.
Tri-County will celebrate 25 years on May 5, 2020.
