The Rainbow Collective was formed to address a growing need for services among LGBTQ+ people in Cumberland County. The goal of TRC is to empower and support LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as their family, friends, and fellow community members. TRC hosts a wide array of programming which includes events for youth, caregiver support groups, and community wide workshops. In addition, TRC acknowledges the importance of helping to build a safer and stronger community through accessible education and advocacy.
