Bethany Christian Services of Greater Chattanooga Expands ACEs Program For Bledsoe County

Thursday, September 12, 2019
State Representative Ron Travis announced Thursday that Bethany Christian Services of Greater Chattanooga will be expanding an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) program in Bledsoe County.
 
"With Representative Travis’ support, the General Assembly passed a strong and fiscally conservative 2019 budget that appropriated $2.45 million in recurring funds for ACEs-related activities, including 25 Community Innovations grants funding a wide range of projects across Tennessee," officials said.  "This much-deserved funding will allow Bethany Christian Services of Greater Chattanooga to expand their programs in Bledsoe County, such as providing support to birth parents who temporarily relinquish their children to the care of others." 
 
“This ACEs program expansion is welcoming news for our community in Bledsoe County,” said Representative Travis.
“The services provided by Bethany Christian Services of Greater Chattanooga will help strengthen the long-term success of our parents and children. I will continue to work to provide more programs like this to our community so that the needs of all our citizens are met.”
