SAFE serves college students.
Each of the eight Campus Ministries of The Tennessee Conference are as unique as the students on their college campuses. At Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, the Wesley Foundation realized this distinction. Clarksville is adjacent to Fort Campbell, a United States Military base. Many of the residents of Clarksville have been or have family members who have been deployed to combat. Many of the students who attend APSU have the same personal and family experience. The Wesley Foundation began to explore how to best serve this population. Rev. Jodi McCullah, Director of the Wesley and a U.S. Army Veteran, began to offer opportunities for counseling to these students. As students began experiencing this place, the broader need for families became evident.
Now Soldiers And Families Embraced offers individual and group counseling services, as well as peer support groups for active duty, veterans and their families. These services are provided at no cost, and no insurance is required. It is a non-profit organization funded through grants and private donations. SAFE’s mission is to serve as a resource for the community to ease the readjustment and reintegration of military members returning from our current wars and their families, as well as veterans from previous eras.
