Tallwood Group Home
Our Tallwood group home in the Nashville area provides counseling and independent-living skills to teenage boys ages 15 and up after they have completed residential treatment.
Youth Villages staff actively work toward family reunification with all our youth, helping our them go on family passes as often as possible, whether they are visiting their birth families or getting to know a foster or adoptive family.
Tallwood’s informal deck provides the perfect setting for afternoon chats and cookouts. This group home also features a basketball court, a community activities room, kitchen, bedrooms and staff quarters.

“By strengthening and restoring families, we can give them the best chance for success, and I’m hopeful this award will shine a light on the most effective solutions." - Patrick Lawler

Congratulations to our leader Pat Lawler and ALL Jefferson Award honorees for such an inspirational night. #CelebrateGood ... See MoreSee Less

When Covid-19 first hit earlier this year, there was panic, hysteria and confusion. In spite of it all, our staff, like Kendra Dzingle, did not hesitate to leap into action! Kendra knew that with schools and businesses closing, families would be under incredible stress and, in some cases, worrying how to feed their children without school. Kendra created an internal document full of resources for her families and even got her colleagues involved. They added to the list when a new resource was found, allowing everyone an easy way to share information. This meant families had access to more resources than they might otherwise through a single specialist. "Kendra said, let’s figure it out – they need resources,” said Christina, a Youth Villages Program Representative. “Families are now laid off, and let’s think about how can we help them more.” Visit the link for Kendra's full story.
