"Everyone seems to want a safe place to live and work and a bright future for their children. For this reason, I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Board of the Knox County Homeless Coalition. KCHC embodies all of the principles which guide similar world-class programs: quick, non-judgemental assistance for individuals and families in crisis, with ongoing support until the person or family is stable and independent." — Susan Reider
