Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Through our formula for success, we assist at-risk children in Sumner County by developing in them academic and life skills to produce responsible, self-sufficient adults who contribute to their community.

Vision Statement

All at-risk children have the opportunity to develop their individual potential - to become all they hope to be.

Description

"It is not the aim of Children Are People to level the playing field. Our endeavor is to get disadvantaged young people on the field." -- Fred Bailey, Founder & Executive Director

As one of fifteen children of sharecroppers from Gallatin, Tennessee, Fred was born without the gift of full sight. Despite an intimate relationship with disadvantage, he received a Bachelor's degree from Tennessee State University, worked at General Electric and served as a middle school and high school wrestling coach.

What is his secret recipe for success?
It begins and ends with the presence of caring adults in a child's life, adults who encourage ambition, model a positive work ethic and focus on personal responsibility. Knowing the influence adult mentors had in his life, Fred founded Children Are People, Inc. in order to provide these same advantages to youth in Sumner County, where he currently resides.

Mr. Bailey's Formula for Success

Desire + Ambition + Persistence = Work Ethic
