Organizational History and Background
The Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization under
Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code created under the Human Resource Agency Act, as amended. Our governing body is composed of consumer representative and elected officials from the counties we serve in the Mid-Cumberland Region. Our service area includes Cheatham, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Stewart, Sumner, Trousdale, Williamson, and Wilson Counties, with our central office in Nashville (Davidson County). We have provided services since 1974 and maintain offices in each of these counties.
The Agency provides a variety of services for people in the Region. These include:
As a non-profit organization, Mid-Cumberland receives funding from a variety of sources including local, United Way, private, city, and county donations as well as state and federal grants.
We have the privilege of serving the 13 counties in the Mid-Cumberland region and have thoroughly enjoyed our 40+ years of service! Each day our amazing programs and their staff, some of who are on call 24/7, are keeping people healthy and in some cases alive.
Three hundred sixty five days a year our transportation program transports clients to their life sustaining dialysis treatments, seniors who no longer drive to doctor appointments, and disabled adults to their jobs. The program drives 4.5 million miles a year which is equivalent of traveling to the moon and back 9 times.
For the seniors in the region, our Mid-Cumberland Meals on Wheels program delivers over 300,000 meals a year delivered by caring volunteers who often foster a sense a family for lonely seniors. We firmly believe we are “more than just a meal”! Our In Home Services works with seniors, and the disabled, providing 88,177 of service hours annually. We are instrumental in keeping 91% of their clients living safely and independently at home. The ombudsmen program serves 13,351 Middle Tennessee seniors residing in long term care facilities helping them resolve complaints so those with no advocate have a voice.
Our Youth CAN program ensures out of school, low income youth have a chance to attain their education and employment goals. The program proudly has an 86 % rate of youth who graduate or become employed as participants during their time in the program.
From youth to seniors, we enable the vulnerable in our region to have better lives, and this is only possible because of awesome staff, wonderful volunteers, and generous donors!
