The McNabb Center offers a continuum of social services for families in need. The Center provides supervised visitation and behavior modification as well as a Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption program.
Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption
The McNabb Center’s Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption program serves children and teens who are in state’s custody due to abuse or neglect and who have behavioral or emotional problems. These children need a more specialized type of care than what they can find in standard foster homes. The purpose of therapeutic foster care is to help each child so that he or she may go on to live successfully within the community.
Become a foster parent! Help a child live the life they were meant to live. Provide the support and stability a child needs at the most critical time of their lives.
To learn more about the McNabb Center’s Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption program, call (865) 544-5000 or follow it on Facebook.
The McNabb Center’s Parent Place program provides supervised visitation for children and their non-custodial parents, grandparents or other relatives. If you are experiencing a difficult divorce, or other custodial issue, the McNabb Center can provide a professional to observe visits in a safe and discreet location.

The McNabb Center is here to help parents or caregivers struggling with a young child’s behavior.

This program is rooted in the belief that early, nurturing relationships are the foundation for lifelong healthy development.

The program helps children learn to manage difficult feelings and make safe choices. Children attend for three hours a day, three days a week and the environment replicates a daycare setting.
