“Do not judge me by my disabilities but by my abilities” -unknown
AKM of Tennessee, Inc. believes that every individual it serves is unique and has a reachable potential in both their personal, family and community life. We will strive to understand each individual's wants and needs. We will work with and alongside each individual to implement the services and resources that best help the individual reach their goals and potential.
We believe that people with a disability should have every opportunity to live an independent life. Whether that be choosing their own home, shopping for their own groceries, or planning and attending their own vacations, AKM is here to help them accomplish every goal they set forth, regardless of their disability. If a person is eligible for waiver services, AKM of Tennessee, Inc. is committed to providing any and all services and resources necessary to help their life be more independent. Our goal is to focus on the abilities, rather than the disabilities.
