Mission Statement

St. Andrews Center promotes spiritual, educational, economic, and social growth for individuals and the community.

Description

Founded in one of the city's oldest churches, the St. Andrews Center is a faith-based non-profit that supports the Highland Park area of Chattanooga. Highland Park is a predominantly underserved area of Chattanooga with a large Guatemalan population. St. Andrews serves this population along with the other cultures within the community by providing the following opprtunities:

Low income rent to grow non-profits that benefit the community. Current tennents include:

My Sister's House, Chattanooga Sports Ministries, Free Chattanooga, Main Street Bike Co-op, Children's Nutrition Program of Haiti, Church Iglesia Monte Sinai, along with Chattanooga State's ESL and GED programs.
Our permanent programs serve the poor and immigrant population with:
An afterschool arts academy that provides visual and performing arts to ESL children from 3rd to 5th grade.

A Faith and Food program that builds community gardens, provides produce for the poor, and creates opportunities to promote organic farming. We currently have 29 acres of farmland to create a sustainable organic farm and learning center. This program needs help with building a well and documenting crops. We are interested in an educational partnership opportunity to grow this phase of the program.
