WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
When Signal Centers opened its doors in 1957, our program consisted of nine children with cerebral palsy, one small classroom, and a common goal to help individuals with disabilities achieve a life of self-sufficiency. More than 60 years later, our goal has not changed.
We now serve nearly 200 children through our Children’s Program and home-based services and have created programs like Adult Day Services and Assistive Technology Services to help meet needs in the community and further our mission of helping all individuals with disabilities, regardless of age, strive for a life of independence, but our work has not stopped there.
Partnering with the City of Chattanooga, Signal Centers implemented Family Forward, an initiative providing mentoring, resource connection, and community building to families in Chattanooga.
In addition, we have become a managing partner of the Tennessee Child Care Resource and Referral Network, a Tennessee Department of Human Services program providing training, advocacy, and technical assistance to licensed child care professionals, parents, and children across all 95 counties in Tennessee. WAGE$ is also a state program that supplements the salaries of Tennessee’s Early Childhood Educators. For more information on these two programs, click on the links below:
Our most recent program coordinates Homeless Services with the city of Chattanooga and other local providers.
We have come a long way from our humble beginnings in 1957. In just a short time, Signal Centers has become a leader in early childhood education, assistive technology, and family development. Although our influence has spread across the entire state of Tennessee, the original spirit of Signal Centers is the hub for the multiple services we provide to the community.
We are one Signal Centers family.
To strengthen children, adults and families through services focusing on disabilities, early childhood education and self-sufficiency.
A community that fosters lifelong independence for children, adults and families.
OUR CORE VALUES
Respect. Integrity. Teamwork. Innovation. Stewardship.
