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 established in 1971 by business leaders and families who believed that we are all people with ability. In our early years, we provided on-site employment opportunities for people with disabilities from Medford, Malden, and Everett. 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. Through our array of Career Services we helped people secure or advance 234 careers in Fiscal Year 2016 – many in growth industries like health care and hospitality. 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 national award-winning IMPACT:Ability program provides evidence-based  abuse prevention training that empowers people of all abilities to live safe, healthy lives. At our nine beautiful homes in Malden, Melrose, Peabody, Danvers, Reading, Stoneham, and Saugus, we provide support to 43 people to help them enjoy more independent, dignified lives.
