You Make Our Mission Possible


 Their generosity and compassion allow us the opportunity to fight for the perseverance of dignity, independence, equality, life, and justice for vulnerable Tennesseans. 

The Iris Society was created to honor donors who contribute $1,000 or more within a calendar year. Like Irises, we are known for our resilience. We are faced with insurmountable obstacles every day. And yet, we continue to fight an increasingly difficult battle for Tennesseans. We could not do so without our supporters.
