Engagement, Environment, and Safety

The PEP (Putnam Education Partnership) Foundation is a non-profit foundation supporting Putnam County School System students and staff. Our mission is to ensure every student has the ability to focus on learning, rather than where their next meal comes from, where they will sleep tonight, or their safety while in school. Through focusing on Engagement, Environment, and Safety, PEP strives to ensure every student is ready to be engaged, inspired, and achieve, every day.

Cookeville Children's Museum

Learning Can Be Child's Play

The Cookeville Children’s Museum is a non-profit organization that opened its doors on the corner of 2nd Street and Cedar Avenue in Cookeville’s historic West Side district on December 1, 2007. Our mission as a community-inspired museum is to create memorable learning experiences through the joy of play in hands-on exhibits and programs, providing a community-inspired museum, with resources and opportunities in visually creative art, socially interactive dramatic play, and STEAM-based activities that nurture children’s learning in all developmental stages.

Enriched Personal Outcome

The goal of the Family Support Program is to assist individuals with severe disabilities and their families to remain together in their homes and communities. The program is funded by state dollars and helps families purchase services, supplies and equipment; however due to limited funding, not all eligible individuals can be served. Our focus is to support families with children with severe disabilities, adults with severe disabilities that choose to live with their families, and adults with severe disabilities who are residing in the community in an unsupported setting.
