Timothy Dennis spent 6 years in Tennessee's foster care system. Mr. Dennis grew up in foster care for all of his teenage years. Timothy graduated high school in Knoxville, TN and went on to obtain his certified nursing assistant license. His passion in life is to give back to current foster youth who are experiencing the same things that he experienced. Timothy’s dream job is to work with the Department of Children's Services in the Independent Living Department or CPS Division. Mr. Dennis aspires to do so first, he believes prevention is key. Secondly, in the event teenager must experience foster care he wants to ensure they are aware of all the opportunities available to them that will help them successfully transition out of adulthood into a prosperous future.
