We are a local nonprofit community-based organization that serves the Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill and surrounding area. Our organization mainly focuses on minority rural health disparities. We also hold events for our regular clients.
Our events are divided into 3 categories: fun social event, educational events, and volunteering. We do things like bowling, movies, dinners, game nights, dancing, mini-golf, beach trips, retreats, cook outs, volunteering, seminars, workshops, etc. Our events are drug free and alcohol free.
To put it simply, there are none. There are no membership fees, no initiation, no minimum requirement of meetings/events to attend, etc. Everyone is welcome to seek services at Triangle Empowerment Center or to come to our events. Because lots of people of color, shape, sexual orientation, religion, and culture make up the community we serve, we don’t clique or exclude anyone. These different people also make up the staff and volunteers of Triangle Empowerment Center. We’re about having fun and that everyone is cool when you be yourself. New people are always welcome! We have people sign up for the email list every week. Even though Triangle Empowerment Center's services are primarily geared towards minority MSMs, anyone is always welcome. No matter if you’re straight, gay, lesbian, transgender,etc, we welcome you. The only requirement is that you come as you are.
