Supporting the Chattanooga Community through Social Services

Metropolitan Ministries began as a mission venture of the Episcopal Commission of Southeast Tennessee in 1979, operating out of Christ Church, a local downtown parish. The founders' goal was to answer the calls for emergency financial assistance to those in our community who just can't make it, for whatever reasons. Partnering with other developing initiatives, new organizations were created collaboratively to provide a safety-net for those among us who had exhausted all other options.
