Their mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families around the world.
They serve all of middle TN, including Rutherford County.
Infant Adoptions: They provide free counseling for women/couples in unplanned pregnancies. If they choose to parent, they connect them to resources and provide ongoing support as they desire. If they choose to make an adoption plan, they provide ongoing support, advocacy, legal assistance with adoption process, financial assistance, free counseling for life, free support groups, etc.
Safe Families for Children: When a family is in crisis, they may have no support network to turn to to help with their children while they get back on their feet. With Safe Families, they have the option to voluntarily (they never lose custody) place their children with a safe (home study approved, well trained) family for a short amount of time.
