Talbot Community Connections (TCC) was established in 2001 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2002. TCC raises funds to support the Talbot County Department of Social Services to help meet the unmet needs that are fundamental to the safety, security, health, and well-being of Talbot County’s children and adults. Every year, TCDSS finds citizen need is greater than available governmental funding. Over the last 20 years, TCC has assisted approximately 5000 citizens in need with approximately $500,000.

In support of the Talbot County Children Advocacy Center,

TCC funds helped a victim of sexual abuse attend

self-defense classes at a local gym.  Improvements in school

performance and positive behavior were noted. Many other

victims served at the Children’s Advocacy Center have been

able to participate in equine therapy, music therapy, art

therapy, and trauma-informed yoga with similar positive

outcomes. Non-offending caregivers have been supported by

therapy, family advocacy, transportation, crisis intervention, and

case management.

TCC funds helped provide respite care for a homeless teen that allowed the girl to avoid foster care until placement was made with her aunt.

Additional funds provided respite care for the biological family of a medically-fragile infant, keeping the biological family together and avoiding foster care placement. Other funding provided a mother of three, who overcame addiction, daycare for a child, enabling her to continue to work and maintain her sobriety.
