The Tennessee government reports that there are around 1.5 million children living in Tennessee, which accounts for nearly 25% of the population. Of those children, 23% have experienced adverse childhood experiences that can cause toxic stress which will impact their physical and mental health. Those children are then considered “at-risk” which means that they are “less likely to transition successfully into adulthood” in terms of academics, job readiness, the ability to be financially independent, and the ability to become a positive member of their community.
Nashville Inner City Ministry (NICM) is a Christ-centered community organization that has made it its mission to empower the “spiritual, educational and vocational development of at-risk youth and their families.” NICM has a multitude of programs such as their bus teams which provide reliable transportation, their conquerors teen program which provides field trips, a leadership development camp, learning centers, and more! All of these programs are centered on helping people understand that their life has value and purpose.
Our team at BTJ Insurance is incredibly moved by the work that NICM has done to improve our community and we want to help them! That is why we are committing to donating $10 on your behalf for every recommendation you make to us for a no-obligation quote. With your help, we can ensure that the at-risk youth in our community have the resources they need in order to succeed!
