The mission of Trigg House is to provide a positive and supportive environment to
families in crisis, foster, and adopted children, including those recently
emancipated from the foster care system.
Our programmatic focus is to empower women and children by creating opportunities for dynamic education, financial proficiency, job readiness, physical
& mental health, and general wellness.
Trigg House fosters individuals towards empowerment and self-sufficiency, nurturing future leaders of, and meaningful
contributors to, our community.

In times like these, it takes a village, and the village of Harlem needs our help!”
Standing at the center of the Global COVID-19 pandemic, is America’s most iconic African-American neighborhood! While the rapid spread of COVID-19 is bringing out the best in the community and emergency response teams in Harlem, it also presents real challenges for those who are risking their own lives every day to keep our community safe. We recognize that our community-based healthcare system is already strained, and now the strain is magnified due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, which health experts warn hasn’t even reached its peak. It is more critical than ever that we ban together to support the men and women who are fighting on the front lines of this war on coronavirus. Please join organizers of the Because We Care 2020 HEART Campaign, which includes Unilever, iWoman TV, Austria Rodriguez, Cathleen Trigg Jones, Esi Eggleston Bracey, Lori Davis West Conulsting and Rae Wright Allen, MD,. by making a Tax Deductible donation to show our doctors, nurses, and emergency response teams how much we care about them. The money raised will be used to provide meals and aid to emergency room staff, as well as help keep local Harlem Restaurants in business during this difficult economic time. All it takes is $10,000 to feed the emergency room staff at Harlem Hospital for 10 days. Funds raised from this campaign will be managed by Trigg House, Inc., a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded in 2006.
This past summer, Trigg House founder Cathleen Trigg-Jones went on a community service trip to Tanzania and discovered an orphanage that truly touched her soul.
While Cathleen and her family did purchase a cow named “America,” the reality is these children need a lifetime of support through additional livestock, supplies, renovations, overall support, and more. Your donations will go to directly to the orphanage to provide immediate help.
