Since the birth of TCAC in June of 1999 our commitment to Tennesseans’ and partnership with National Service has assisted countless people in improving their quality of life. TCAC has two AmeriCorps programs- Community Cares and Making Veterans Priority (MVP). The programs provide direct services to the frail, elderly, and challenged. The programs assist in providing job placement, housing, and counseling to Veterans and Military families. AmeriCorps members who serve with our programs are afforded a living allowance, education award, and childcare incentives.
Our Resident Leadership conferences provide a variety of training's to residents and staff of public housing communities. The annual national conference provides housing volunteers and leaders venues to learn, network, and grow leadership skills. The training they receive will improve community programs, dispel the long outdated negative image of public housing, and other low-income communities.
TCAC’s DEPOT is open to the public. The depot provides the community a place to obtain building materials, home goods, office supplies and much more. The products are available at a discounted cost. The Depot also makes donations to other non-profits and faith based agencies and over 100 local and state partnerships.
TCAC is located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, but our programs meet the needs of thousands of Tennesseans from Mountain City to Memphis.
