Tennessee Youth Services

At Envoi Associates, we specialize in delivering comprehensive services to children and youth under the care of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS). Our approach involves assigning a dedicated Envoi Associates Program Coordinator to oversee each child or youth's support and well-being. In our family model, children and youth reside with a carefully selected foster family other than their family of origin. Whether married or single, our foster parents may or may not have their own children living in the home. This arrangement creates a supportive and nurturing family environment that promotes the welfare of each child or youth.

Therapeutic Foster Care

Our commitment to safety and the well-being of the children and youth is paramount:

  • We rigorously recruit, screen, and train foster families and direct support staff, adhering to the strict policies and procedures established by DCS and Envoi Associates.

  • We maintain a zero-tolerance policy against mistreatment, abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Any such conduct is not tolerated.

  • We are dedicated to upholding an environment where foster parents and direct support staff can provide the best care possible to the children and youth in our custody, without hindrance.

At Envoi Associates, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of care and support for the children and youth in the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services custody, with a strong emphasis on their well-being, safety, and nurturing family environments.

Nondiscrimination Policy

Nondiscrimination Policy

At Envoi Associates, we uphold a non-discrimination policy and treatment philosophy throughout our organization. We do not discriminate against any individual seeking to become a foster parent based on their race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or national origin. Our decisions regarding the enrollment, placement, or dismissal of a child or youth with a disability or chronic condition adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. When making placements, we always take into account a child or youth's cultural, ethnic, or racial background, as well as other individual characteristics, and the foster parent's ability to meet the specific needs of that child or youth.
