Chambliss Center for Children – Chambliss Center for Children (formerly Children’s Home/Chambliss Shelter) began in 1872 as an orphanage, started by a group of women from the five downtown churches in Chattanooga. It was incorporated in 1878 as the Women’s Christian Association and was later changed to be called the Vine Street Orphan’s Home. After outgrowing their Vine Street building, the program was moved to a new building on Gillespie Road in 1939 where it still resides today. As the foster care system was implemented in the 1960’s, the number of children residing in the orphanage began to decline. It was then that the Board of Directors sought a new way to serve the children of the community. Thus began our Extended Child Care program that operates to date, caring for children from 6 weeks old up to 12 years old. This early childhood education program is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and serves parents at any income level by setting their fee based on income. Approximately 78% of the children in this program come from single-parent homes and about 80% are living at or below the poverty level. This qualifies most of our 300+ children as “at-risk”, therefore we have a strong focus on education and school readiness in order to help these children succeed in school and later in life. There are developmentally appropriate activities for children each day, three meals and a snack served, and transportation provided to designated neighborhood schools. The program is a Three Star Program – the highest awarded by the state for early childhood and care programs. Today, Chambliss Center for Children cares for almost 700 children daily, through its two on-site programs and its network of childcare centers throughout the city.

Sanctuary Hospice House – In December 2000, a group of retired medical physicians, nurses and community leaders came together with the community and began the many fundraising efforts that lead to the eventual opening of the non-profit we know as Sanctuary Hospice House in 2005. At Sanctuary Hospice, hospice appropriate patients are accepted regardless of age, sex, race, religion, diagnosis or ability to pay. There are MANY patients who cannot pay having no means for reimbursement and they are NEVER turned away from Sanctuary or turned over for payment. ALL patients are treated the same way – given love and compassion in a way that has often been compared to “angelic” and “heroic”. Each year, countless capital efforts are comprised by dedicated supporters and those who have been served by Sanctuary so that the good works may continue. Having now served more than 2500 patients and families through the Sanctuary Hospice House and more than 1000 through our home hospice offering, the apparent need is great! At Sanctuary Hospice we continue to be blessed by our community through fundraisers, through the honorariums and donations but the financial requirements are staggering. Our goal is to always provide the same love and compassion that we have become known for showing those we serve that when time is limited, life doesn’t have to be. We work with those we serve helping them to feel loved, to be pain free and to find the comfort they need to help them from the passage from this life to the next.
