Tennessee Children’s Home Campus in Henderson, TN has been in operation for decades. Over the course of its existence, several services have been provided including counseling, foster care, adoption services, and respite care. There has always been a significant relationship between Tennessee Children’s Home and area churches. These relationships have made it possible to build and maintain our campus, having occupied it as Tennessee Children’s Home for about 25 years.
The Henderson campus serves at-risk males age 13 to 18 in a residential setting where they receive behavioral modification treatment using the Equip Program model. The Equip program is designed to teach youth to think and act responsibly through a peer help approach. New Heights School is the on campus fully certified State School.
Currently, our Henderson campus can serve up to 24 youths (primarily at-risk teenage males). This campus has an intensive alcohol and drug program, education services, a clinical program, and spiritual growth opportunities. The goal of the program is to reunite youth with their families and empower the youth and their families to establish a healthier home environment. While changes have occurred over the years, the fundamental goal of Tennessee Children’s Home remains the same. Which is to improve the lives of those we influence through quality services in a Christian atmosphere.
Since January 2020, the Henderson Campus has been involved in a renovation project. To date we have raised over $200,000 for the renovations. Due to COVID-19 and other factors, this project has been suspended and is due to start up again by the middle of 2021. The second part of this project (due to unexpected costs and additional needs) is seeking to secure an additional $200,000.
