Welcome to the Koinonia Foundation Tennessee

The Koinonia Foundation Tennessee was founded in 2001 to promote and support programs offered by The University of Tennessee, through the College of Health and Human Sciences and the Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport Studies.

Since then, we have expanded our focus to broaden the range and scope of programs we would like to support in the East Tennessee Region. We understand that after the age of 21, individuals with disabilities in multiple functional domains have limited Program options to support life-long learning and that can enrich their lives.
