Did you know that 1 in 6 Knoxville residents live at or below the poverty line? Currently, 26% of our neighbors are living in poverty compared to 12% nationally.
The Knoxville area has almost 700 churches that have the resources and capacity to make a monumental difference in the lives of vulnerable citizens of our community.
Compassion Coalition is a member based organization that exists to help the collective church respond to the needs that often go unmet in our city. We call these “gap needs”.
We help Knoxville churches by informing them of needs in Knoxville; equipping them through training; connecting them to areas of need and empowering them to serve in our community.
