Tennessee Disability Pathfinder (“Pathfinder”) helps people with disabilities, their family members, educators, and other professionals find and access resources, support, and services available to meet their needs.

Information and Referrals: We connect individuals to appropriate community resources. Our diverse staff includes professionals, family members, and/or individuals with disabilities that have many years of experience working in the disability field. You can access these resources by contacting our office at 1-800-640-4636, searching our resource directory, and checking our community calendar.

Education and Training: We provide innovative training and presentations to inform people about Pathfinder, Disability Etiquette, Working with Multicultural Populations, and Community Resources.

Multicultural Outreach Program: This aims to remove the barriers that many culturally diverse communities find when trying to access disability resources by providing case management assistance and training presentations.
