Five Points Resource Guide

Introduction

The Knox County Health Department and the Five Points Health Equity Work Group collaborated to compile this document to provide information on programs and organizations that are located in and serve the Five Points community and surrounding areas.  The document can help facilitate discussions and collaborations between groups with similar focuses and others within the community.

The guide is organized by categories such as afterschool care/summer camps, community engagement, food access, support services and so forth.  Many of the agencies/organizations may appear under more than one (1) category.  However, an alphabetic listing of all the agencies will be located within the document.  The Index section should be consulted to determine the exact location for the agency/organization listing.

The guide is not a replacement for individual agency/organization’s websites or other community resources.  It should be used as an additional way to link people to services and connecting agencies.  By grouping the agencies by category, it will provide an opportunity to see available resources and gaps in services in the community.  The hope is that the guide will provide information on a broad scale to allow agency engagement and collaborations. 

This resource guide should be a community effort to put it together and keeping it updated. The PDF version of this resource will be updated quarterly. The last version is from August 2014. If you have any information on changes to the existing list or would like to provide information on new organizations that should be included in this resource, please contact Sarah via email or by phone at 865-215-5187.
