Housing & Transporation

  • Compassion Coalition - a member-based organization that exists to help the collective church respond to the needs that often go unmet in our city. We call these “gap needs”.

  • Compassion Closet - provide quality clothing and tangible goods to foster children and their families. We also desire to serve birth families, aging-out youth, kinship placements, and domestic/international adoptive families as God allows and the needs arise. The Compassion Closet exists to provide quick-turn assistance to foster, kinship, adoptive, and other families in the Eastern Tennessee area.
