Established in 2000

Happy Hills Youth Ranch was founded in 1970 to provide homes for neglected, dependent and abused school-aged children. Happy Hills offers educational opportunities, a family centered approach to personal and group counseling, recreation, and spiritual training. A team approach for each child specifies ways that staff, parents or guardians, and the child can work together toward the common goals of reuniting the family and preparing the child for adulthood. In 2000, Happy Hills merged with Tennessee Children’s Home, strengthening its work to serve children. This Fund will produce revenue to support important services to disadvantaged youth.
