When family crisis prevents a child from remaining in his/her home or with other family members, the Tennessee Baptist Children's Homes is there to accept children into its residential care program.
Through this program, eight children live together as an active, giving family unit in campus cottages with a married couple who serve as houseparents. Each cottage is a large, comfortable, family-style home with a spacious kitchen, family room, study area, an apartment in each cottage for the houseparents, and four bedrooms for up to eight children (two children per room).
Children in residential care attend local schools and churches. In each home, devotions remind the children of God's love and presence in their lives. Children are encouraged to participate in activities at school and at church with their peers. Spiritual, emotional, and academic guidance are provided on-site by the child's houseparents, social work staff, and volunteers.
