The Tellico Community Foundation, an affiliate fund of East Tennessee Foundation, set a goal to aid in Our PLACE’s success and to fulfill the Foundation’s commitment to support seniors in need in Loudon and Monroe counties. To that end, the Foundation has donated one acre of land to be used as the location for the facility.

Envisioned as a community-wide initiative, a number of churches, service organizations, clubs and locales are joining Our PLACE’s list of supporters:

The Day Center will be staffed by two permanent employees—a Center Director and a Program Manager—along with part-time employees and a team of trained and supervised volunteers. All staff members will receive initial and ongoing training as required by the State.
