Welcome to TEEG Online!
TEEG (Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group) is a small grassroots non-profit social service agency in North Grosvenordale, CT. We began in 1985 as a group of volunteers that joined together to meet the needs of “Three Rows”, the largest mill village in the North Grosvenordale section of Thompson. The community volunteers determined our focus was to create a safe place for children to play and to foster “self-help.” In 1988, TEEG was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
At TEEG, we have always believed that the quality of our service rests on two things: compassion for those who seek our service, and accountability to those who fund our programs.
Our ability to serve is driven by the needs of the community. We are grateful for the trust Northeast Connecticut has placed in us to offer a hand up to our neighbors in need. It is a privilege to serve and empower our community. Our motto has always been, “We provide a hand up not a handout.”
TEEG primarily serves the Quiet Corner towns of Woodstock, Pomfret, and Thompson. Some services on a program-by-program basis are offered to the following towns in our region:
