“Our program has evolved so much over the years. As times change, you must adjust your sails and go in the direction of the wind to keep up with need and demand."

Tonya Polidoro, Executive Director


MATS has a rich history of serving Hamblen County, as well as nine surrounding counties, and we strive to make sure it will continue to do so for many years to come. Our purpose continues to be to serve men, women, and whole families experiencing homelessness, providing shelter, food, clothing, and intensive case management with job readiness, budget coaching, and soft skills, helping to improve their chances of success by enabling people to navigate their environment, work well with others, perform tasks well, and ultimately achieve their goal of sustainable income leading to permanent housing.
