Mission


Talbot Community Connections (TCC), a ten-member volunteer board, was formed to raise funds to enhance the Talbot County Department of Social Services’ (TCDSS) capacity to respond directly to problems of safety and well-being of county citizens. The funds raised provide help to abused children through the Talbot County Children’s Advocacy Center (TCCAC), families in crisis, the unemployed and working poor, and disabled and frail elderly. TCC awards provided funds for respite care, prevention of evictions and utility disconnects, therapeutic activities for children with disabilities in foster care, housing fuel, transportation, and a fatherhood program. TCC funds are able to help individuals stay in the community, families stay united and families stay in their homes.


FUNDS RAISED
 
    From July 2019 to June 2020, TCC raised funds through private donations like this request, grants, and education events. TCC provided over $32,000 in funds which helped many children, families, and adults to experience a more secure environment. The Children’s Advocacy Center, which is supported by TCC, relies on monies from this community, in-kind donations from local participating agencies, and grants. This is especially important this year with the CAC’s move to an offsite location from Memorial Hospital. Without these funds, vulnerable adults and children in Talbot County would not have benefitted from much-needed services.

Talbot Community Connections (TCC) helps citizens in our community who experience problems that lead to unexpected needs. We do this by raising funds for the Talbot County Department of Social Services to use in assisting people who fall between the cracks of programs designed to keep people safe and families together. This past year, TCC was able to help fund the following activities:

Helped sponsor the 11th Annual Back to School Resource Fair – providing 269 cinch sacks filled with school supplies to young children through high school aged students


Helped sustain mental health support at the Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) for sexual abuse victims and their families of to cope with these crimes, including equine therapy, supplies and snacks during interviews, and a Challenge Course team building activity for families  


Collaborated with the Talbot County Department of Social Services to provide the third annual Senior Summit at the Talbot County Community Center – offering information for seniors and their families about aging issues, as well as educating healthcare professionals to provide senior care


Provided an Annual Celebration of Families Fun Event for Talbot County Young Fathers Program/NPEP (Non-Custodial Parent Employment Program) at Jolly Roger Amusement Park/Splash Mountain as a Family Fun/Safe destination


Supported Empower Me, the inter-agency child abuse prevention effort for the county, including delivering presentations to such agencies as Critchlow Atkins Childcare and University of Maryland Shore Regional Health’s standing parent education programming


Supported the Department of Social Services Wellness Initiative to improve employee self-care and wellness in light of the stressful nature of their jobs

How would you feel knowing that a local family had been evicted and had to be separated from one another, when your help could have prevented it?  Last year, funds that were donated to Talbot Community Connections (TCC) were used to help the vulnerable adults and children of our county.  In one instance, the funds provided through TCC fundraising enabled a smooth transition with minimal disruption to a family already upset by the stress of losing the place that they considered to be their home.
