In 1979, concerned family members banded together to fulfill a critical need at that time: to develop safe, decent and affordable housing linked with support services for their offspring afflicted with a disability. In 1985, Triple C purchased our first group home to serve 5 individuals discharged from state institutions; and now, 43 years later, we support over 250+ individuals and families…and growing more opportunities each and every day!
Since its inception, Triple C has continually identified the need to create more affordable housing opportunities to fully integrate individuals and families in safe and decent neighborhoods; and proactively attend to the unique, needs of persons served. As such, Triple C has maintained a steady stream of housing development linked with enhanced support services to respond to the growing needs of the community.
