Sustaining Stars are a special group of TJC donors who contribute a recurring monthly or quarterly gift. These generous donors have the foresight to realize that fundraising is fickle, and they can provide a sustainable and reliable source of income for the organization with their monthly or quarterly pledge! Our recurring donors gave a total of nearly $70,000 in 2022 allowing us to better plan our expenditures and manage our cashflow. With the support of our Sustaining Stars, our team can continue to fight and win against insurmountable odds for Tennesseans each day.

Susan Hale

In 1995, Susan Hale turned to the Tennessee Justice Center and has never left. Back then, she came for help with fostering a child. Michele Johnson, today’s executive director, guided them through the process and the Hale family grew by one. That year, Susan called Michele and the staff at TJC “miracle workers”. Today, she stills calls them her “miracle workers”. Her family continues to rely on the support of TJC, even though not all their battles with health care are won. To this, Susan says that losses give her even more reasons to donate. “There is no other group like you guys…if you can’t get the job done, then no one can.” The Hales are just one family donating monthly to the Tennessee Justice Center because they believe that a state – a world – without TJC is not a place worth living in.
