About Us

TCSW is a statewide nonprofit membership organization providing information, continuing education, and public policy awareness for Tennessee social services professionals.  

TCSW's Mission

To be the preeminent catalyst for creating and fostering broad-based networks, connecting community stakeholders and policy-makers for a better Tennessee.  We are committed to advancing the welfare of all Tennesseans, especially those most vulnerable to the effects of poverty, physical and mental illnesses, disabilities, and abuse and neglect.

What We Do

Professional Development

TCSW hosts high-quality professional development and networking events, which provide human service workers with opportunities to increase competence and expand their leadership skills.  TCSW conferences and workshops also provide opportunities to meet and develop relationships with other social services professionals.  Those relationships improve our knowledge of best practices and community resources and often bolster professional collaborations.   Continuing education hours are offered for workshops on a variety of current topics led by subject matter experts. 

See our Learn pages for more information about events in Middle, and Southeast Tennessee and in the Mid-South.

Connecting Community Stakeholders

TCSW helps members and others connect and collaborate to find creative solutions to meet community needs.   TCSW's Executive Director and Board Members serve on state and local boards, committees, and work groups that make a positive difference for vulnerable Tennesseans. Invite TCSW to be involved! 


TCSW is able to provide specialized human resource consultation and staff development on facilitative supervision, personnel and staffing needs, and organizational image enhancement. We also have a staff development curriculum, Spirit of Service: Compassionate Care, to help agencies establish and maintain a culture of compassion. Contact us for more information.     

"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.
