Where We Serve
Situated 1,000 feet above the valley below, the South Cumberland Plateau features nine towns, each with populations less than 2,500. Since 2012, SCCF has served this region that extends from Sewanee to Beersheba Springs and Pelham to Palmer. The Plateau encompasses the entirety of Grundy County, ranked in 2019 as Tennessee's most economically challenged county. The Plateau also includes portions of Franklin and Marion counties.
