The Northwest Tennessee Human Resource Agency is committed to enhancing the quality of life for all residents of the Northwest region. We meet our standards through existing services and we are constantly searching for new programs to meet our consumers ever changing needs through our values and principles. These principles are to identify the needs and advocate services of the population of the Northwest region as well as to consider the total social economic and environmental well-being of the community. We want to encourage independence as well as conduct research and development that will increase support and operational systems. We strive to contribute to growth of the community by helping consumers maintain their dignity. We recruit in hopes of increasing volunteerism through our community. We contribute to the local economy by employing people. Our goal is to enable older persons to achieve gainful employment and personal development through their community service and training.
