Founded in 1913, the Tennessee Conference on Social Welfare (TCSW) is a statewide, private, and nonprofit agency, with the mission to be the preeminent catalyst for creating and fostering broad-based networks, connecting community stakeholders and policy makers for a better Tennessee.


"TCSW conferences help me keep up with best practices, network with other social service professionals and remind me of the great work we do."

LaTamera Woodley, Nashville.


"Working in social services can be somewhat challenging. By networking with others at the TCSW conferences I feel empowered to work through the challenges.  I greatly encourage anyone in social services or any related field to connect with TCSW, because the experience you encounter will have life changing effects."

Kendra Woods, Nashville.
