Our mission is to build better Tennessee communities by providing diverse cultural visual/performing arts, education, and quality speech-language-hearing services to under-served, under-represented, under-insured, and/or un-insured infants, children, youth, adults, and/or seniors without discrimination.
Arts, health, education, community outreach, and advocacy are our program areas of concentrations.
Our program provides speech-hearing screenings, massage therapy, nutrition education, oral motor & voice activities, amplification accessibility, physical fitness activities, and more at events. Blood pressure screenings, dental care, and other health care services are offered at our program fair. All screenings are free during events and provided on a sliding scale * basis at office locations.
Local, regional, and national visual and performing artists provide music, dance, comedy/spoken word, magic, paintings, and sculpture, as well as, art education during community events. Artists who share their talents with those who might not otherwise have a chance to experience the arts, play an integral part in every event.
"Laughter is the Best Medicine" Health and Arts Program provides events at unique Middle Tennessee public and private venues and other surrounding areas during April [Minority Health and Autism Awareness Month], May [Better Hearing and Speech Month], September [Deaf Awareness Month], and December [Gala Holiday Season].
Our organization actively lobbies on the local through federal levels for health care and arts. Politicians, commissioners, agency representatives, educators, celebrities, and other community/policy leaders attend events and consider legislation to continue these needed services for the community at-large.
