Partnering To End Homelessness

Throughout our community, friends, neighbors, and co-workers are going through the devastating struggle of losing their homes. But we believe through partnerships and compassionate support, everyone in Blount County can have a place to call home.

A Place to Stay is the entry point to services for neighbors in Blount County, Tennessee, who are experiencing homelessness.
