Faith-Based Community Coordinators

The TDMHSAS Faith-Based Community Coordinators are people with lived experience to connect with communities of faith to recruit, train, and certify through the Tennessee Certified Recovery Congregation program.  Each community coordinator is employed by their local Community Anti-Drug Coalition.  The department currently has three Faith-Based Community Coordinators, one for each grand division of the state.
