Fountain City Ministry Center’s mission is to glorify God and transform lives through helping Knox County residents in need return to a more self-sustaining lifestyle by providing relief in the way of food, hygiene items, and children's clothing. The Ministry Center is a cooperative effort of ten Fountain City area churches to provide these services, often in partnership with many other charitable organizations in the area.

The ministry of Holston Home began in 1895 when a single woman took a step of faith and founded an orphanage in Northeast Tennessee. From those early beginnings, the "Home" has grown to serve more than 325 children and their families on any given day with family service centers located throughout East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. The professional, caring services of Holston Home are focused on keeping families together. When it is necessary for a child to live apart from his or her family, they provide quality, compassionate care and remain focused on getting the child and family reunited.
