Tennessee Voices for Children, Inc.

About Us

We have taken the lead in promoting the use of a coordinated system of care in Tennessee that includes family support and community engagement as key components. TNV works collaboratively with parents, professionals, state and federal officials, policy makers and other key stakeholders to ensure that services provided to children and families in Tennessee are family driven, community based, and culturally and linguistically competent. TNV also serves as a critical partner in multiple national efforts focused upon transforming the system to be more responsive and inclusive of the families they serve, spanning multiple programs, populations, and states. TNV is a not for profit with 501(c) 3 status and the statewide chapter of the National Federation of Families. TNV’s board consists of 51% parents of children with special needs to ensure that all services and programs are family driven and youth guided. The majority of TNV’s staff are parents or caregivers of special needs children. TNV is licensed by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health as a mental health facility.
