It Shouldn't Hurt To Be A Child

Life can be stressful and overwhelming. Prevention services helped parents learn safe and healthy ways to deal with stress so that they did not take it out on their loved ones.

Healthy Families Grow Healthy And Happy Children

TNCSA helped families stay together by teaching parents how to love and provide discipline appropriately without causing harm to children.

When Hope Was Lost, We Were There To Restore It

With thousands of evacuees from Hurricanes Rita and Katrina relocating due to their devastating loss, TNCSA provided housing, appliances, clothes, and items to start over again all across Tennessee

It Won't Look This Way Forever

Some left to go back home a year or so after the hurricanes hit. Others decided to stay and make Tennessee their new home.

Hard Times Don't Discriminate

You never know when it might be your family that is struck by disaster. It is good to know that there has been help in the past and there will be help in the future.

Effectively Save Tax Payer Dollars

No Need For RFPs When Contracting

It is written in the Rules and Regs that the Commissioner can contract directly with our agency without the need for costly request for proposals.
This allows us to cut through the red tape for quick implementation.

Effectively Save Tax Payer Dollars

That's what we were created by legislation to do!
Let us ease the burden of the tax payer while easing the budgetary restraints of your department by handling your contracts efficiently with quality results.

Quality Doctors

We brought doctors to the countryside in an effort to provide quality healthcare to those who lived further away from metropolitan areas.

Rural Tennessee: A Health Initiative

When doctors were sparse in rural Tennessee, TNCSA stepped in and brought quality doctors to areas where healthcare providers were few and far between.

Helping Our Children Stay Healthy
Covering Children's Healthcare Needs

Helping Our Children Stay Healthy

TNCSA spent a lot of time investing in seeing that this program got off the ground. It is rewarding to know that parents who were between income levels were able to insure that their children were covered if and when they needed it. Rewarding indeed!

Covering Children's Healthcare Needs

CoverKids meets a need for working parents who are unable to insure their children due to cost restraints. TNCSA was instrumental in a grass roots effort to spread CoverKids across the state for the benefit of our children.

TNCSA Contracting

 Tennessee Community Services Agency was created by the General Assembly for the purpose of meeting the needs of individuals, families and communities by coordinating and providing services across Tennessee.  Since we are not direct recipients of tax payer funds, contracts (either directly or through RFP's) are our means to serving the populace.  With our unique status as a political subdivision and instrumentality of the State, we have a great opportunity when it comes to contracting with Departments of State government.   Departments can contract with the CSA by simple contract negotiation  without having to go through any of the RFP or announcement of funds processes.  Rules promulgated by the Department of Finance and Administration reinforce this relationship and allow for direct contract negotiation with the CSA.  Many departments have found this to be a much more convenient, efficient, timely and cost-effective manner of implementing programs.  TNCSA sits at the ready to assist any Department of State government to implement their programs.  Give us a call for more information at 731-884-2640.

For groups outside of state government, we can respond just as quickly and effectively for you.  Contracting with the CSA is easy.  Our Board of Directors supports the Administration of the CSA in reaching out to communities across Tennessee to fill gaps in services, start up new programs, or provide structure and accountability to an existing program.  We are here to help.  Contact us to see how we may be able to work together.
