Our Vision and Mission
The Agency’s vision is to create a society in which each person has a sense of self-worth and well being; accepts responsibility for self, family, and community; and has the capacity to be productive and independent. Our mission is, “To help people help themselves by providing knowledge and resources to improve the quality of life in the Mid-Cumberland Region.”
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:
- In Home Services
- Meals-On-Wheels/Senior Dining
- Transportation Services
- Long-Term Care
- Ombudsman Services
- Community Corrections
- Access to Jobs
- Misdemeanor Management Services
- Representative Payee Services
- Women, Infants & Children
- YouthCan-Career Action Network
Our Agency receives funds from a variety of sources: United Way, private contributions, local (county and city) sources, the State, and a limited amount of Federal funds. Most of the State and Federal funds are based on contracts, whereby we provide services based on specific requirements. We also perform services and are paid based on our performance. If we do well with these, our revenues exceed our costs and we are able to put these funds into other activities.
We receive no funds from anyone to “exist” if we do not deliver services that are valued by someone, we are out of business!
