Youth served in Middle Tennessee

In 1998 Youth Villages welcomed Nashville-based Serendipity House which was founded in 1973. This partnership doubled our capacity to care for children in Middle Tennesee. In Middle Tennessee, Youth Villages offers our full continuum of programs serving emotionally and behaviorally troubled youth – Intercept, MST, Residential Treatment Programs, Foster Care, LifeSet, Adoption, Mentoring and Specialized Crisis Services.

Residential Campuses:
Group Homes
The Nashville area is home to several group homes designed to serve help transition teens who have completed residential treatment back into the community. Learn more about our Group Homes.
