Our Mission 45 Years Strong
"To serve as supportive companions to the Triangle residents on their journey
to physical, mental, and spiritual health."
Who We Are
The Triangle Community Ministry, Inc. (TCM) serves over 300 residents living in the Triangle Neighborhood of Madison, Wisconsin, most of whom are challenged by chronic mental, emotional, physical, and/or developmental disabilities. TCM is dedicated to the development of personal dignity, self-empowerment, and community building among its residents. We encourage and support participation within the broader community, provide holistic health services at no cost to the individual, and are an inclusive ministry that does not discriminate on the basis of age, disability, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or national or ethnic origin. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, TCM develops relationships with generous donors and grantors to support the vulnerable in our community.
Supporting the Whole Person
Health | Community | Connection
Since 1998, Triangle Community Ministry has partnered with St. Mary's Hospital to provide an onsite nurse serving residents with routine medical support and a caring presence during medical procedures and after care. Food distribution, and Monday Meals program reduce food insecurity and provide a comfortable setting for residents to interact and consult with the nurse on a near weekly basis.
Outreach Development Coordinator staff and TCM's active Board provide creative opportunities to learn, meet neighbors, socialize, create art and find ways to empower residents to live rich and fulfilling lives. Many residents have lived in their homes for over a decade or longer. TCM helps provide a safe, secure and inviting environment to age in place.
With our mission to be a ministry of presence always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with mental and spiritual challenges of those living with disabilities and poverty. With sensitivity to residents' varied religious and non-religious commitments, our onsite chaplain provides a personal ministry of presence to alleviate the strain faced by residents in navigating relationships and their daily lives.
"A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination."
