Services with a focus on improving Upper Cumberland Quality Of Life

The Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) was established by the Tennessee General
Assembly in 1973 to be the delivery system for human resources in the fourteen counties of the region:

Cannon, Clay, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Smith, Van
Buren, Warren and White.

The Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency was created by the fourteen counties of the Upper Cumberland Region to establish an effective regional network to deliver social services to our communities. Helping Upper Cumberland Citizens become self-sufficient through the effective delivery of financial support, job training, transportation, nutritional services, and many other important social services.

It is our vision to have a region that has programs and networks established to assist our fellow citizens when they are vulnerable and less able to care for themselves.
