Free Will Baptist Family Ministries, based in Greeneville, Tennessee, has been caring for hurting children and families since 1939. What began as an orphanage has expanded into a multi-faceted and diverse ministry, providing a wide range of professional services to all ages.

We have been accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities), founded in 1966, as a service provider, which signals our commitment to continually improving services, encouraging feedback and serving the community.
