WE'RE ON A MISSION
"As a church affiliated 501(c)3 nonprofit, DuBose is able to powerfully affect change in the religious and secular world. Located in one of the poorest counties in the country, the center is uniquely positioned to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate."
Fighting Food Poverty
The DuBose farm-to-table garden program provides great food for Center guests, but it has a dual purpose: excess produce is routinely donated to local food pantries and the garden is used a teaching tool for schoolchildren and other educational workshops. This program is made possible through a generous commitment of outreach from St. George's Episcopal Church (Nashville).
Supporting Community Nonprofits
Caring citizens and the hard work of nonprofits are what make a healthy community and robust economy possible. The behind-the-scenes part of this includes countless logistics meetings, program planning days, and volunteer trainings. DuBose Conference Center offers daytime, business-hour meeting & venue space at no charge for registered nonprofits in Grundy, Franklin, and Marion counties.
Housing Those Who Help Others
DuBose is partnered with the South Cumberland AmericorpsVISTA project to offer temporary, affordable accommodations to incoming members of the VISTA team while they are serving on and around the Mountain. Lodging in historic Claiborne Hall, the "3rd Floor Community" is a network hub for service members and provides a place for these generous individuals to hang their hat at the end of a long day.
Your support is what makes our mission possible.
