What We Do

Unite & Mobilize Tennesseans To Serve Our State's Most Vulnerable

The Governor's Faith-Based and Community Initiative was created by the Tennessee legislature in 2019 in response to Governor Bill Lee's vision to leverage the power and possibilities of Tennessee's faith communities and non-profit organizations -- in partnership with state government -- to solve the state's most challenging issues.

With over 11,500 houses of worship and 30,000 non-profit organization across Tennessee -- and 23 state departments -- the Governor's Faith-Based and Community Initiative is uniquely positioned as a nimble and proactive problem-solver for the state's diverse challenges -- from re-entry of incarcerated men and women to supporting children, youth, and families in foster care.
