Tennessee Voices for Children provides leadership, support, and services that promote voice, hope, and empowerment for the emotional and behavioral well-being of children, youth, and their families.
The organization was formally organized in 1990 by Tipper Gore as a statewide coalition that worked together to promote children’s health and education services. Since its founding, Tennessee Voices for Children has progressed to become a statewide and national source of referral, support, and advocacy for families and the systems that serve them. We provide advocacy, training, family support, referral, prevention, early intervention, and in home services.
With the rapid and dramatic state changes that are impacting services provided to our children and families, public policy development and advocacy is taking on an even more important role. TVC, through its leadership, has established itself as a strong and nonpartisan voice for the rights of children's mental health. TVC attempts to become knowledgeable about changes and policies and laws that will affect our children, to speak out forcefully on these issues, and to educate our legislators and other public officials about the impact their decisions will have on children and families.
