Travel with us the Volunteer State and enjoy beautiful Chattanooga! This city has received national recognition for the renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its riverfront. The city boast the most productive affordable housing program in the nation, and is notable for leveraging development funds through effective public/private partnerships, with significant civic involvement on the part of private foundations. Chattanooga was one of the first US cities to effectively use a citizen visioning process to set specific long-range goals to enrich the lives of residents and visitors.
Attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Civil War battlefields sites, the African American Museum, and the Appalachian Trail bring thousands of people to the area each year.
Point Park is a ten acre memorial park that overlooks the Lookout Mountain Battlefield and the city of Chattanooga. There is a paved walking path around the park that takes visitors by several historic tablets, monuments. Confederate artillery positions, and scenic overlook. The largest monuments in Point Park is the New York Peace Memorial, which was erected by the state of New York as a tribute to peace and reconciliation between Union and Confederate veterans after the war. Inside Point Park, at the point of the mountain, is the Ochs Memorial Observatory. Inside are exhibits on Civil War signaling, photography, and Moccasin Bend, which is visible below the point.
The Lookout Mountain Attractions include three top rated, world-famous natural attractions that showcase the natural beauty of Lookout Mountain and views of the Chattanooga Valley.

The Chattanooga Community Kitchen opened as a feeding program in 1982 when seven downtown churches partnered together in an effort to better meet the needs of Chattanooga’s growing homeless population. Since then, they have expanded to cover a city block, providing food and supportive services to the homeless and needy of Chattanooga seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Habitat for Humanity partners with people in communities across the country and across the world to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With support from volunteers, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
The Tennessee Aquarium is a private, non-profit organization and volunteers are vital to their success. The Tennessee Aquarium’s Teen Volunteer Program was designed to give high schools students a chance to learn more about the field of biology, further pursue their interests in conservation, and meet like-minded teens who share similar interest while giving back to the community through volunteer hours.
