Tennessee Children's Home - WEST

SERVICES

 

            GROUP CARE

Three homes are dedicated to caring for mid to long-term placements in a family setting.  Typically, the children in this program come out of backgrounds of abuse, neglect or abandonment.  Currently, there are twenty-four children being housed and cared for in these three homes.

           COMMUNITY FOSTER CARE

The backgrounds of these children are very similar to those in group care.  The most obvious difference is age.  Itís not at all unusual to have preschool children in this program.  These children are cared for in private homes.

            EMERGENCY SHELTER 

Children are usually at our shelter for thirty days or less while the courts and caseworkers involved determine a longer-term placement for the child.  WTCH has both a boys are girls shelter serving a total of sixteen children.
