The Tennessee Faith & Justice Alliance (TFJA)
The ATJ Commission staff developed an Implentation Manual for those interested in adopting the Referral Model. The Implementation Manual has samples of training materials, information on applicable court rules, and forms needed to successfully adopt the Referral Model. ATJ Commission staff and members of the ATJ Commission Faith-Based Initiatives Advisory Committee are available to help religious organizations implement the Referral Model. The Implentation Manual is available here.
Staff has also developed resource manuals for volunteer lawyers of faith-based groups that are members of the TFJA. These resource manuals are divided by Grand Divsion and include information on the TFJA, legal service organizations, mediation centers, and frequent legal topics and potential solutions. The manuals also include information on area social service providers. A list of legal clinics in the Division and resources for self-represented litigants are also provided in the manuals. They are available below.
