Tupelo Children’s Mansion offers hope to orphaned and disadvantaged children by providing for their physical, spiritual, emotional, social, and educational needs.  TCM aims to contribute to their health, security and happiness, while equipping them to lead productive lives.

Recently, the Mississippi Department of Health, in a glowing review of TCM’s campus and operations, granted TCM permission to increase their capacity to 120 children.  This expansion is welcome news for TCM as they know more children in Mississippi need a loving, nurturing home and schooling.

Yet, in order to accommodate more students, Tupelo Children’s Mansion needs to expand their chapel and gym within Freeman Hall, and they have embarked on a campaign to do that.


The new Tenney Gymnatorium in Freeman Hall will provide ample room for indoor recreation, as well as sufficient seating for church services, graduations, banquets and other special events.

TCM is delighted to name this project in honor of E.L. & Nona Freeman and TF & Thetus Tenney.  Throughout seven decades of ministry that impacted untold thousands globally, they never stopped caring about Tupelo Children’s Mansion.  The Tenneys and Freemans ministered often in Tupelo, embracing the children and blessing them.

E.L. and Nona Freeman are Tanya Jernigan’s grandparents,
and she was one of the many lives they impacted around the world.

The Jernigan Foundation is delighted to support this expansion project of Tenney-Freeman Hall to honor the legacy of the Jernigan family and continue to support that legacy as it blesses future generations!
