• Go ahead and use the hashtag #CAI50 when taking photos at the Fall Social on September 14th!

• Host a breakfast, lunch, or happy hour the week of September 20 and share photos on social media. Encourage some of your local CAI members, management companies & business partners to co-host with you.

2023 CAI Community Partner

Men of Valor is the 2023 Community Partner of CAI TN.

Men of Valor is an organization committed to winning men in prison to Jesus Christ and discipling them. Their purpose is to equip them to re-enter society as men of integrity – becoming givers to the community rather than takers. To learn more about this charity, visit their website at www.men-of-valor.org.

While working with our Community Partner Men Of Valor, we are collecting donations for the following items throughout the year and are asking for your help! You may also bring used men’s clothing to the monthly meetings or any other events throughout the year and drop in the collection box in the lobby next to the registration desk. We will make sure that the items are delivered to them.

Basic toiletries such as toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes, lotion, etc.
