How We Help

Madison County United

In the most recent Kids Count State Report released by the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth (TCCY), Madison County ranked 95th out of all 95 counties for overall child wellbeing. While this is a sobering wake-up call for the community, it can also serve as a catalyst for improvement.

The Madison Co. State of the Child Summit recordings are now available. If you missed this event, we encourage you to watch these videos below to further your understanding of how you can better serve our future leaders within our community. Only together can we create positive change that endures for the next generation. #MadisonCountyUnited
