Residential Care

Volunteer Information



The children at Tennessee Childrenís Home live in houses much like yours and mine.  The children help with the cleaning and cooking chores and are responsible for keeping their rooms neat and clean.

The house-parents are the primary care givers and are assisted by the Case Workers and other staff to make sure the children receive the very best care.  Weekdays, after breakfast and morning chores, the children head to our on-campus school where they have classes.  They eat lunch at the school lunch room.  After-school there are chores and some fun time before dinner.  After supper there is study time.  Tutoring is available for those who need extra help with their school work. After some down time, itís off to bed!

On weekends, the parents may visit their children, or those children with passes get to go home for the weekend.  For those remaining on campus, there is swimming, ballgames, and other activities.

Tennessee Childrenís Home provides counseling for every child and family who wish to make use of it.  There is one-on-one and group counseling to work through problems that plague the lives of these children.  Because the childrenís lives have often been chaotic, part of their therapy involves establishing a basic day-to-day routine.  They work with their teachers, house-parents, peers, and staff to accomplish their goals.  They are taught to accept personal responsibility for their actions.  The children are loved and encouraged to do well and to learn from their mistakes.

Our whole program is designed to help the children develop a greater understanding of who they are in Godís eyes.  With the knowledge of His unconditional love, they can begin to make better choices, resulting in better lives.

The program at Tennessee Childrenís Home is highly structured to help the children be successful.  Behavior is monitored closely, using a level system to track the childrenís progress.  They work to earn privileges and advance to the next level.

The children learn to work and play together in harmony with respect for the rights of others.  Many have never had any type of structure in their lives.  Most begin to thrive when in our care as they learn to practice self-discipline.
