JHM Certified Public Accountants funded $2,500 in special needs learning and child-care scholarships for children, through the Chattanooga Metropolitan YMCA’s 2013 Community Support Campaign.

Their confidence and social skills can keep growing all summer long,” said Dean Krech, JHM’s managing partner.


The award, representing JHM’s long-running commitment spanning more than 15 years, will provide low-income families with access to childcare programs at their local Y, emphasizing learning, health and nutrition.


The Community Support Campaign seeks to raise general operational funds and program scholarships in 2013 for special needs students, low-income parents and their children, and the elderly. To learn more or to contribute to the campaign, call the YMCA at 423 265-8834.
