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.

Residential Care

As the flagship program at Tennessee Children’s Home, our residential care encompasses almost all of the services we provide. We provide for physical, social, emotional, spiritual and educational needs of the children and youth in a safe and secure environment.

Alcohol and Drug Treatment

Tennessee Children’s Home serves youth and adolescents at Level I and at Level II through our substance abuse program. Level 1 is structured group living in the community for children and adolescents with relatively few emotional or behavioral problems.

Professional counseling is a service that’s attendant to almost every service we provide. The changing face of the culture has created “latch-key” kids, and the incidence of neglect and abuse continues to rise across the country, as well as in Tennessee.

In-Home Care

Providing emotional support for children returning home and their families is part our commitment to ensure successful results.

Spirtual Guidance

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.
