All individuals have value and they can better contribute to themselves, their families and their communities when provided the support they need.
TRC is to promote self-sufficiency through an innovative and comprehensive network of supportive housing, employment training and placement, as well as educational services. TRC was incorporated in 1992 by four ecumenical historic churches located in the Bronzeville community of Chicago – to actively participate in ending homelessness one individual at a time.
Our value statement - “All individuals have value and they can better contribute to themselves, their families and their communities when provided the support they need.” With this value statement guiding all of its decisions, TRC has gained a reputation for excellence in developing creative supportive housing and employment solutions that renew people and build healthier communities.
Unfortunately, the demand for our services far outweighs community supply, and the problem is only growing. Participants served by TRC are underserved, and are at high risk for chronic homelessness. They are also faced with issues such as barriers to employment, and the inability to obtain safe and affordable housing, mental illness, poor health outcomes, and gaining access to government benefits.

-To empower individuals through the provision of comprehensive “wrap around” services, (employment training, life skills training, and health and wellness activities);
-To engage participants in transitional and industry-specific job placement programs, such as our “Bronzeville Green Organic Landscaping” initiative;
-To educate the wider community about the plight of homeless people and advocate for policies and programs to end homelessness.
