Tennessee Alliance for Kids (TAK) engages the community to meet the emergent needs of children in foster care, those at risk of entering care, and youth aging out.
The Problem We're Solving
The Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS) cannot solicit donations as a government agency and out of a need for tangible support, Tennessee Alliance for Kids was established in 2016. TAK serves the Davidson County DCS, Mid-Cumberland DCS, Office of Independent Living and Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes.
When social workers identify the critical needs of children, TAK meets those needs through items we call FosterLove.
