Our History

Tri County Community Network Serves:

  • Pregnant and parenting families whose children are birth to age 5 (both English and Spanish speaking);
  • Children ages 2.5 to 12, and their families;
  • Adult who are unemployed, under-employed and those receiving CalWORKS services;
  • Residents seeking assistance with basic needs; and                   

We operate the only center-based (unsubsidized) preschool and school-age care and education program in the region. We prepare unemployed and under-employed adults for work success and self-sufficiency and assure compliance with CalWORKS requirements. We provide supports for residents with mental health challenges and promote local job and housing opportunities. We provide training, weekly activities and support to families with young children, we teach a weekly financial literacy and nutrition class. We also operate a home-based English Learners Program. And, we own and maintain a local community park. We provide space for the Dignity Health Connected Living, an alcohol diversion program, dance class, AA groups, Girl Scout troops, a church and community meetings.

The Intermountain Community Center opened its doors in February of 1991, as a teen center and after-school program, We soon added a preschool program and dining room and kitchen so that meals could be prepared and shared by local seniors.  All of this was made possible because of the generosity of the McConnell Foundation and their commitment to our region.
Over the years, we have listened to the community and adapted to changing needs.  We have a Board of Directors and staff who  are selflessly dedicated to supporting families and promoting the health and vitality of the Intermountain region.
We are grateful for the tremendous support that we receive for local residents and regional partners.
