The TCM Community

The Triangle neighborhood is named because of its distinct shape bounded by the intersections of Park Street, Regent Street and West Washington Avenue.

Home to approximately 335 people, the Triangle is the second largest subsidized housing complex in Wisconsin.



History
In the mid 1960's, urban renewal programs leveled all homes, places of worship, stores, and playgrounds in the Triangle area, formerly known as the “Greenbush," in order to make way for low-income public housing. But, new apartments, designated for the elderly and those with disabilities, did not automatically provide a new sense of community, services to support an optimum quality of life or places of worship. In 1978 an ecumenical group of individuals and faith communities, working with community health and social service providers, formed the Triangle Community Ministry to minister and reach out to all residents. Their objective was to offer essential holistic services to build up and sustain body, mind and spirit.
