Since 1952 TN Alliance work has been grounded in values that reflect our commitment to quality services for children and families. Our Member agencies strive to provide the best services possible to the children of our state through the use of best-practice models and guiding principles.
“To serve as a voice for our members in enhancing the well-being of children, families, and communities in Tennessee.”
For many years the Tennessee Alliance for Children and Families has represented the common interests of the many private member agencies who care for Tennessee’s most vulnerable children and their families. Across the state, these agencies provide care for Tennessee’s children through foster care, adoption, residential care, family reunification, counseling and custody prevention. Last year, member agencies provided services to over 7,000 abused, neglected, delinquent and troubled children. Every year millions of dollars in private community support is raised by the TN Alliance member agencies to supplement the full cost of providing services to children and families. Our member agencies are working hard to ensure positive outcomes for children while also seeking to provide a needed service for the citizens of Tennessee in the care of its at risk and abused/neglected children and families.
The TN Alliance provides the following services to our members:
Advocacy and legislative tracking allows our members to stay at the forefront of child welfare policy and allows them to make informed decisions about how changes can potentially affect the children and families of TN.
The TN Alliance staff and board members are available to participate in various study/work groups in order to provide a provider perspective. Through our pro-active initiatives, the TN Alliance has become a leading voice on issues concerning Tennessee’s children and families.
