Have you met Buddy? He’s a regular at TCC’s drop-in Center! See below for a special message about Fairfield County’s Giving Day from Buddy and RW, a TCC client. ◾️ I would like to share with you a story. It's my story. It's about what happened in my life that brought me to TCC and why your donation is so important. My daughter was a week from her 26th birthday. She died after a period of painful illness, leaving behind my granddaughter. I was torn apart. After feeling hopeless watching my daughter suffer, I lost hope, I lost everything. I found myself homeless, unable to cope. I moved into a car and struggled with suicidal thoughts. After some time struggling to get help from other organizations, I was at my wit's end. Getting services often isn't easy and you have to take a lot of extra steps using resources you don't have. It is a challenge to live on the streets, struggle with deep emotional issues, and then on top of all that, to jump through hoops just to get a temporary bed for 9 hours, especially while having an emotional support animal. I was living in my car with my dog, Buddy. Then I came to TCC. I expected the experience there to be just like the rest of the organizations I went to. I immediately noticed the opposite. The staff is experienced and more importantly compassionate and understanding. As TCC guided me through the housing process, they bought insulation to help keep my car warm. They gave me food. They got me and Buddy off the streets and into an apartment. TCC saved my life. Because of TCC, Buddy and I now have a place to call home. -- RW and Buddy Support Triangle Community Center today-- click the link on our page. #FairfieldCountyGives

💗💙💗 It’s International Pronouns Day and (almost) Spirit Day! 💜💜💜 ▫️ International Pronouns Day seeks to make asking, sharing, and respecting personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities. We encourage colleges, schools, workplaces, and local organizations to hold educational and empowering events on International Pronouns Day. ▪️ Spirit Day is an opportunity to speak out against LGBTQ bullying and support LGBTQ youth, who face disproportionate amounts of bullying and harassment because of their identities. Wearing purple on Spirit Day visibly shows solidarity with LGBTQ youth. Come to @youngadultspace today between 1-6PM and celebrate with us!
Happy National Coming Out Day to everyone on the LGBTQ+ spectrum— may you feel affirmed, uplifted, and supported by your friends, family, and peers. 🏳️🌈 Just a reminder that @youngadultspace is open 20 hours a week for all youths ages 18-25 to come hangout and be their authentic selves, drop by today! ▫️ 🏳️🌈 Monday - Thursday, 1-6PM 650 West Avenue, Norwalk, CT 06850 (📷: Fairfield County’s Pride in the Park 2018)
