Through Founder Fred Bailey's formula for success, Desire + Ambition + Persistence = Work Ethic, the staff and volunteers of Children Are People, Inc. (CAP) empower and enrich the at-risk children of Sumner County to develop the academic and life skills necessary to produce responsible, self-sufficient adults who contribute to their community.
All at-risk children have the opportunity to develop their individual potential - to become all they hope to be.
The idea of “Being a Good Samaritan” was originally put into practice by the Community Pastors Association in the mid ‘69s. In the fall of 1994, the Hendersonville Samaritan Association was formed by the Community Pastors Association (CPA). It’s purpose is to help families in need get through a crisis that is unusual to their lifestyle, and then to assist them in becoming self-sufficient. The CPA serves as the Advisory Council to HSA.
