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, up to 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, family-style home with a kitchen, family room, and activities area.  These large family units provide a safe environment where the children can be children guided by God’s principles and direction.

We have five locations across Tennessee. You can find some basic information about our campuses below.
