Knox County Orders “Safer at Home” Effective March 24, 12:01 am


The Order does not apply to Volunteer Ministry Center as our services fall under

Section 4 as an “essential service.”


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Volunteer Ministry Center has adjusted its operations

in order to maintain safety and well-being for neighbors (those we serve), volunteers

and staff. 


VMC takes the possibility of exposure very seriously and is attempting to mitigate any

and all risks.  Therefore, these measures are in effect until further notice.


All volunteer opportunities are suspended, including meal groups. If you would like to

provide and drop off food for a meal, call and schedule a time with Angela Lister

at 865-924-3055.


The Bush Family Refuge and the Dental Clinic program services are not operating.


Minvilla Manor is practicing social distancing as social visits are not permitted.


The Foyer, Resource Center and Minvilla Manor will continue to offer pre and post-housing services to neighbors with enhanced hygiene/cleaning protocols while observing social distancing.


The best way to support VMC’s on-going work is to do so with a financial contribution.  


A financial contribution affords us the flexibility to meet the ever-changing situations that arise daily.  You can mail your gift or do so on-line at


Ever so grateful for your support and may all be safe and well!
