We are excited to announce the opportunity and challenge given to the Tennessee Children’s Home by the State of Tennessee. Because of the quality of our programs and the positive results we have achieved with the youth and families, the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) has asked us to expand services across the state. This is an unprecedented moment in the history of TCH. TCH has been blessed to have served over 20,000 children, youth and families since 1909. We believe that God has blessed this ministry because we have intentionally and courageously taught the love of Christ to all we have served. TCH has launched the Providing Direction campaign which will expand our services across the state by building new group homes and education facilities. With these new facilities, TCH will be able to serve 50% more youth in east Tennessee and 33% more in west Tennessee every year. In Ashland City at our North Central campus we will be able to provide 3 additional apartments for displaced families while they are getting their lives back together with our help and guidance. The Providing Direction campaign is a $6,000,000 initiative that will allow us to increase our services as well as grow our endowment. The cost of the new facilities for TCH-East is estimated to be $2,000,000; for TCH-West, $1,500,000; and for renovations at the TCH-North Central Campus, $500,000. The remaining $2,000,000 will add additional dollars to the endowment to help maintain and sustain our new facilities. In order to raise the $6,000,000 necessary to expand and grow, we have asked our board, and all current donors, including churches to participate in the Providing Direction campaign. However, we are still short of our goal. We need to help as many families as we can. The state will help us pay for the services, but will not provide funding for facilities. With your help, we can raise the funds necessary to build additional facilities to serve more youth and families. Please watch the video on YouTube Providing Direction Capital Campaign
We need your commitment and that of your foundation to impact hundreds of lives in the future of the cause of Christ. For more information please contact Brian King at 931-486-2274 ext. 215
