Our Mission

Family Ministries is a faith-based therapeutic foster care child placement agency operating in Tennessee. We believe providing a loving and stable home environment is crucial to a child’s physical and mental health, ensuring they become successful and productive citizens.

Our Need

Foster parents possess a vital role in stepping up to be a family to a child who is unable to return home. Foster parents open their hearts, as well as their homes, to children in need of love, support and encouragement. Their influence and guidance are invaluable as a young person struggles to find the right path in life.

Family Ministries also offers In-Home services. We work with the client and his/her family in the home placement setting. The goal is to wrap services around the client from his/her own community that will help them maintain a stable placement once Family Ministries is no longer in the home.

It was here that that wounds of the past were healed and a love for adventure was instilled that released me from being place-bound. It set me on a path to a wider experience. Right here I developed a concern for other people and learned to accept love as well as give it. In this very place, a desire was born in me to pass on the message that had made my life glad....
