WHO WE ARE
Cumberland Children’s Center, better known as the “House of Hope,” is a short-term care facility providing care and services for drug-endangered, abused, and at-risk children of Cumberland County. These children have fallen victim to physical, emotional, environmental, and sexual abuse as well as being exposed to drugs. A large percentage of children brought to the House of Hope results primarily from their parents’ illegal drug uses.
The House of Hope is also dedicated to assist law enforcement and child welfare agencies of the State of Tennessee, as well as educate and inform the public on how to recognize, prevent, protect, and provide aid to children who have become victims of child abuse, neglect, drug endangerment, and any other collateral activity affecting the welfare, health, safety, and protection of children.
Our additional programs are created from needs in the community brought to our attention. We will continue to pursue ways to enhance the lives of children and families.
