Neighborhood Centers

What are Neighborhood Centers?

Neighborhood Centers bring a broad range of programs & services to our local communities. In general, Neighborhood Centers are in communities to bring CAC and other social services as close as possible to those families and individuals who need them.

Neighborhood Centers provide emergency assistance services, self-sufficiency case management, information and referral services, intake services for other CAC programs, and offer ready community access to most other locally managed social service programs. They also provide technical assistance and meeting space to neighborhood associations.

What you will find when you visit your Neighborhood Center:

  • A small, friendly staff located as a point of service to provide information on most CAC administered programs.
  • Applications, guidelines, and staff to assist you in completing the application(s) for most CAC programs and services, including Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and KUB’s Project Help program.
  • Help with finding a job, writing a resume, and gaining employability skills. This includes employment and budget counseling.
  • In Spring, you can apply for free garden seeds and plants through the Green Thumb Program.

The Neighborhood Centers are funded by the City of Knoxville and Knox County, the Tennessee Department of Human Services through state funds, and the US Department of Health and Human Services Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)
