Thank You for supporting our Fall Foodie Fun-Raiser!



TRFP, the agency's lead program, was established in 1992 due to a growing homeless population of single women with children. Since then, nearly 600 families with over 900 children have resided and transitioned through our furnished 24 unit, two- and three-bedroom, apartment building. 

Four years ago, Thames River Community Service, Inc. (TRCS) began prioritizing this program to serve young parents and their children. Since May 2017, TRCS has become a transitional housing program for families headed by youth between 18-24 years of age. They are mothers, fathers, or couples who have been in the foster care system themselves, have been victims of human trafficking, have been homeless or unstably housed, with little or no healthy support system. While at TRFP, they work with our staff to develop life skills, including parenting, employment and tenancy. This enables many to leave TRFP for permanent housing within a year. 


In 2008 Thames River Community Service, Inc. was awarded the contract for the Supportive Housing Program by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS). The program provides families with rental assistance and comprehensive, individualized services in safe, scattered site housing units throughout New London County.
