2021 TN Voices Golf Tournament
Tennessee Voices for Children, Inc. (also known as TN Voices) was formally organized in 1990 by Tipper Gore as a statewide coalition of individuals, agencies, and organizations working together as a Steering Council to promote children’s health and education services. TN Voices (TNV) has progressed to become a statewide and national source of referral, support, and advocacy for families and the systems that serve them. Through the Statewide Family Network and its other ten main programs, our organization has informed, supported, and assisted parents and providers across the state. In the past fiscal year, TNV has reached more than 50,000 parents/caregivers, family members, and professionals (providers, educators, other advocates, etc.).
