Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction. (Annie Sullivan)

Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted. (Garrison Keillor)

Catholic Charities of Tennessee, Inc. specializes in bringing these words to life through two special programs.

If you are a parent looking for support to reduce stressors and increase your skills, our staff can help you with opportunities to meet the many challenges faced by families. Contact our Creating Hope by Assisting Parents (CHAP) Programs. We provide parenting education, crisis intervention and case management for families that need these services.

Some youth experience the trauma of violent crimes including homicides. You can turn to the VOCA-HOPE program to serve your child. Catholic Charities' staff offer individual and group counseling for the children who are considered secondary victims of homicide or victims of assault.

Niños requieren guía y empatia más que instrucción (Annie Sullivan).

Nada de lo que haga para los niños es desperdiciado. Puedan parecer no se fijen en nosotros, permanecer inmóvil, evitando nuestra mirada, y rara vez ofrecen gracias, pero lo que hacemos por ellos nunca se pierde (Garrison Keillor).
