Monroe Harding

Our mission is changing young people’s lives. Since we began in 1893 as an orphanage for displaced youth, Monroe Harding evolved and continually adapted to meet the needs of children and young adults who are in or transitioning out of state custody. We ensure that foster care youth and other vulnerable young people build a solid foundation of strengths, positioning them for success in adulthood. We provide children, young adults, and families with resources in the areas of Homes, Healing, and Opportunities through Engagement. We also advocate for service recipients and empower young people to advocate for themselves. Monroe Harding is the only agency in Middle Tennessee providing a comprehensive continuum of services for current and former foster youth from birth to 26, as well as serving other vulnerable young adults. We fulfill our mission through four programs: Foster Care, Supportive Housing, Clinical Emotional and Mental Health Support, and a Youth Connections Resource Center.
