(MURFREESBORO) The Family Center of Tennessee, whose mission is to break multigenerational cycles of child abuse, neglect, and trauma, has recognized two of Rutherford County Correctional Work Center’s Superintendent Bill Cope and Corporal Kim Salyer as standout “Change Agents for Children.”
A “change agent” is defined by TFC as someone who makes it possible for their organization to “changes lives, change families, and change futures”. Rutherford County Correctional Work Center Superintendent Bill Cope and Corporal Kim Salyer were two of a few change agents featured in last week’s TFC newsletter.
President and CEO Susas Galeas said, “Our community’s youth are our future, and Superintendent William “Bill” Cope and Corporal Kim Salyer are dedicated to serving the children of incarcerated parents. They recognize the challenges these kids face, so their goal is to have a successful transition back into the community and the family for the incarcerated parent. Their partnership with The Family Center helps this happen by supporting healthy relationships in the family.”
In Murfreesboro, The Family Center is located at 115 Heritage Park Drive.
