Our Story

Mission Statement

Through support, challenge, and opportunity, Triangle, Inc. empowers people with disabilities and their families to enjoy rich, fulfilling lives. We are committed to helping the world realize that we are all people with ability.

Our History

Triangle, Inc. was founded in 1971 by community and business leaders in Everett, Malden, and Medford who believed that employment was an essential part of gaining independence. In our early years, we provided on-site employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Because people with disabilities wanted to work and live in the community, we also opened three community homes in our first decade.

Since 2001, Triangle, Inc. has rapidly expanded to provide youth and adults with the innovative career, leadership, and safety skills they need to live more independent, dignified lives. Our School-to-Career and Empowering People for Inclusive Communities (EPIC) initiatives equip high school students with disabilities and recent graduates with the tools to start careers and serve and lead their local communities. Our Triangle Abuse Prevention & Safety program provides abuse prevention training that empowers people of all abilities to live safe, healthy lives. At our eleven beautiful homes in Malden, Melrose, Peabody, Danvers, Reading, Stoneham, and Saugus, we provide support to 51 people to help them enjoy more independent, dignified lives.
