"SCCF is building on the unique strengths of the Mountain -
its people, its community, and its incomparable natural setting...
Through the Plateau community's collective efforts and collaborations,
you CAN help people realize they have hope."

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.
