Bristol’s Promise holds in trust the assessment and planning process for Bristol TN/VA children and youth. Bristol’s Promise is a catalyst and change agent that encourages the community to look at the big picture when assessing and planning for children and youth’s needs.
We will mobilize the Bristol TN/VA community to fulfill its promise to meet the basic needs of each child while promoting the development of their character, faith and educational potential. We ensure Bristol’s children, youth and families are healthy, feel safe, develop marketable skills, have relationships with caring adults and give back to the community.
