Assistance programs in Middle TN

Unfortunately hard times have fallen on so many in the Middle Tennessee area.  I have heard story after story of families and individuals who have just been down and out.  Sometimes it can be difficult or impossible to make "ends meet".  There are several programs in the Middle Tennessee area that are out there for you and loved ones that you know in need to reach out too...and that is why they are there. Also check with your utilities companies, many of them have "at need" programs to help out too!  If you are having trouble finding help, please email us at couponingforchrist@gmail.com and we will see what we can do to help you out with program referrals, ect.
