TCC was formed to give Tempeans a central place to discuss needs for human services and ways the needs could be met. TCC incorporated and received its 501(c)(3) tax exemption in 1976 and became a United Way agency soon thereafter.

TCC is dedicated to working in partnership with the City of Tempe, community organizations and dedicated individuals to serve as planner, researcher, advocate and resource to advance the human services in Tempe for all our residents.
