Cottage Cove stretches every dollar to maximize its impact on this community and provide quality programs for children and youth. We have a small professional staff that is passionate in their service. One ongoing challenge for Cottage Cove is securing sufficient annual support to pay our staff sufficient wages to encourage long term stability. The board has made this a specific focus of its efforts over the next few years. Further we are seeking to add additional board members to join us in this task.

In Tennessee, gang presence has been on the rise since the late 1980s and early 1990s, when gangs first made a concerted push into the state. Since 2011, police have identified at least 5,000 gang members in Davidson County, and gang-related crimes have increased by 25%. Meanwhile, cities with 50,000 or fewer inhabitants have seen gang-related crimes triple in frequency nationally since 2005.
All Tennessee families should have access to high quality, developmentally appropriate child care and after-school programming for their children, regardless of income level.
