Adults With Exceptional Needs
The Disabilities Ministry of Tennessee Baptist Adult Homes provides Christian residential care for 55 men and women who have intellectual disabilities. In six group homes located in four cities, a loving and dedicated staff provides meals, transportation, recreational activities, and 24-hour supervision. Many of our managers actually make their home in these facilities. It is our goal to provide a very normal, homelike environment. Each resident is encouraged to reach his or her own potential. These Christian homes emphasize the importance of personal spiritual development.
