Our organization has its original roots in “The Migrant Project,” a small and dedicated group of people within the North Carolina Council of Churches who developed a much-needed plan to support the state’s farm worker population. From seed money provided by the federal Office of Economic Opportunity, the program, which was to become Telamon-Transition Resources Corporation (TRC) grew, and expanded to serve farm workers in 10 additional states.
Telamon-TRC is a private, nonprofit organization which seeks to improve the lives of those in need. Telamon has enjoyed a long and successful journey of progress and expansion since 1965. We have seen firsthand the impact that our services have in our customers’ lives, providing them with opportunities to become self-sufficient, thriving citizens in their communities.
We’ve expanded into work with youth, veterans and an array of new customers. Our programs and services in the areas of early childhood education and family support, financial education and empowerment, and workforce and career services continue to grow. With more than 100 locations in 11 states, we are committed to our work to provide educational services that empower thousands of people each year to build better lives for themselves and their families.
Today, Telamon serves more than 13,000 customers annually through a diverse array of education, training, housing, financial empowerment and community service projects.
