Tennessee Children’s Home has given a loving Christian home-like environment to over 20,000 children since its humble beginnings in 1909 as a refuge for three children who had been tragically orphaned.
Although we’ve grown dramatically, we still can’t keep pace with the ever-growing need. The Child Defense Fund says that a child is abused or neglected every 57 minutes in Tennessee. Our services have also expanded dramatically to answer the challenges of a changing society, including family counseling and substance abuse treatment.
As part of Tennessee Children’s Home’s commitment to the children and families we serve, TCH provides in-home services to children who have completed our residential care program. Providing emotional support for children returning home and their families is part our commitment to ensure successful results.
There are three roads a person can take; Wrong Way, Merge or One Way. Many young people in our care have taken the wrong way. Some have tried merging some good and bad choices. Tennessee Children’s Home helps get young people on the right path, the right road, the one way.
