Proposed re-development of Tennessee Children’s Home in Spring Hill, TN.
About the Tennessee Children’s Home:
Tennessee Children’s Home began in 1909 as the Tennessee Orphan Home in Columbia, Tennessee. It was created to meet the needs of the three Scotten children, who had been tragically orphaned. In 1935, the Home purchased the campus of the Branham and Hughes Military Academy and moved to Spring Hill, Tennessee. As with many of the old orphanages, the Home was designed as an institutional facility with central dining, central laundry, dormitory living, and a small farming operation. The approach to child care was to provide the basic physical needs of children and to offer Christian instruction. The number of children served grew dramatically throughout the decades, and in late 1982, the name was changed to Tennessee Children’s Home. In 1988, TCH expanded again by merging with West Tennessee Children’s Home, followed in 2000 and 2001 by mergers with Happy Hills Youth Ranch near Ashland City, and East Tennessee Christian Services in Knoxville. Since 1909, TCH has cared for over 20,000 children. Professional services, coupled with loving staff and a Christian environment, make Tennessee Children’s Home one of the finest programs in the state.
TCH intended to continue their mission at a new campus in western Spring Hill.
