#Lovechattanooga

We Love Chattanooga.

We love to wear the shirts, put the stickers on our cars, and experience all that this city has to offer.
But what would happen if we showed our love for Chattanooga by the way we treated people? 

Imagine the impact we could have on our city if we Love Chattanooga one person at a time.
That means showing up to serve, meeting people right where they are, giving, inviting someone to dinner, connecting on a personal level.
We want to point people to real help and real hope. We want to point people to Jesus.

That is what #LoveChattanooga means to us.
Connecting. Serving. Giving.

Our Community Partners.

A big part of Love Chattanooga is our community partners. We partner long-term with organizations and ministries in our city who make a difference in our local community, reaching people we don’t know how to or wouldn’t be equipped to like they are. We come alongside them to support and encourage, love and equip, serve hands on, and partner  financially and relationally.

April 2021

Chambliss Center for Children -
  • The Transitional Living Program at the Chambliss Center provides stable housing and careful case management for youth who have aged out of traditional foster care at age 18. Each apartment unit is furnished and decorated by local nonprofit organization Homes + Havens, utilizing a trauma-informed design approach to create a comfortable, serene, and uplifting environments for teens entering the Transitional Living Program. We purchased several necessary household items to fill each apartment such as hangers, laundry basket, food containers, pots and pans, cleaning products, kitchen items (plates, mugs, baking pans), trash cans, vacuum cleaners...etc.
  • A few of our staff got to visit the units and speak with Jon Berestecky, the Director of Transitional Living. He shared with us, "The housing is nice...food on the table is essential.. but what these young people really need is family, a sense of connection and belonging. Which is what we all need, right? We really invest in this trauma informed approach through these units because all of these kids have been through so much. And through this program, we're investing in these youth to create the kind of atmosphere that is safe and helps them heal, that says, "you're worth it."
