About Trinity Village

Trinity Village is a supportive and caring, inclusive community that needs your support. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 lockdown made it very difficult for families to interact with their loved ones and access programming. So we are going for a walk!


We're fundraising so that all residents can access smart technology in their rooms to better interact with their loved ones and access programming. Help us reduce loneliness, connect families, and build a stronger community.


Since we cannot predict the future of the pandemic, please, join our team in this walk and give generously to support this campaign by clicking the "Register" and the “Donate” buttons above.


We're better together!


Building Community Since 1972!
