Vol State welcomes Catholic Charities to its Gallatin Campus! Vol State and Catholic Charities are part of a New Collaborative, Tennessee Alliance for Economic Mobility (TAEM)

One of TAEM’s approaches is designed to mitigate the effects of the “benefits cliff”–a broken piece of the public support system that leaves low-income families worse off financially when they increase their income and thus de-incentivizes caregivers from pursuing increased earnings, education, and opportunity.

TAEM's offers:

  • a transitional benefit that will be paid directly to food, childcare, housing, and health providers to increase families’ access to fresh food, childcare, housing, and health care when a family’s net resources decrease due to the benefits cliff.
  • family-centered coaching, whereby participant families define goals for every member of the family and receive consistent support from their dedicated coach to achieve those goals. Families drive the goal-setting and progress-tracking processes and are surrounded by a tailored team of experts.

TAEM Coaches and Navigators are now located on the Vol State campus in the 300 building (building 21) on our "East Campus" across Gap Road.
