CEO Statement MCHRA is part of the Human Resource network of the State of Tennessee. It is an important component of a system that delivers efficient, cost effective services to the citizens of Middle Tennessee. Those that benefit the most are vulnerable populations: low income, elderly, and the young. Through the programs of our Agency, the elderly receive many of the services they need to stay in their homes and retain their independence: home delivered meals, essential in-home services, transportation to shopping and doctor’s appointments.  For the elderly who must transition to long-term care, we provide placement assistance and advocacy to ensure that their quality of life and rights are respected. Low income families with children receive assistance with transportation to work and school, education support and mentoring, and nutritional supplements. Other programs provide probation supervision for felons and misdemeanor violators; alcohol, drug and tobacco use prevention education; behavior modification classes; and financial management/bill paying services to help keep individuals with mental illnesses or disabilities from becoming homeless.
