Tennessee Voices for Children
Tennessee Voices for Children, Inc. speaks out as active advocates for the emotional and behavioral well-being of children and their families. TVC was founded by Tipper Gore in 1986 at a time when there was a great need for more mental health services in Tennessee for children and youth. Focusing on improving the coordination and delivery of children's mental health services, this statewide coalition grew into an influential statewide non-profit organization with offices in each region of Tennessee. TVC has been recognized for bringing people and agencies together to address issues pertinent to Tennessee's children and their families from individual child and family needs, to gaps in services within a community, to policy issues at the local, state and federal levels.
