Faith-Based Community Coordinators

The TDMHSAS Faith-Based Community Coordinators are people with lived experience who 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 four Faith-Based Community Coordinators, one for each grand division of the state and one dedicated to Shelby County.
