The Trinidad and Tobago Association of Washington DC, Inc. (TTADC), a District of Columbia non-profit membership organization with 501(c)(4) status, originated as a soccer team comprised of a group of Howard University students. TTADC is devoted to the promotion of social welfare, charitable, educational and recreational activities that can bridge the cultural and lifestyle gap between the Caribbean community in the Greater Washington, DC area and general population.
Founded in 1962, the hallmark of the Association is pioneering and progress. From 1962 to 1968, it functioned as a soccer club; from 1968 until its incorporation in 1970, the Association’s name was the Trinidad and Tobago Sporting and Cultural Association. In 1970, It adopted its current name to reflect both an expanded vision and a new role, the proud owner of a “home away from home” at 1501 Delafield Place NW Washington, DC.
Although the Association no longer owns “a home,” it is a vibrant force in the Caribbean community and continues to partner with service groups, professional organizations and university student groups for the betterment of the community; our diverse membership is our strength.
The mission of the Association is to foster and promote unity and cooperation among the people of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean in the Washington Metropolitan Area and to advance their well-being through the operation of charitable, educational, economic and cultural programs and events to meet the changing needs of the community.
