In the last 20 years, Bartlett has grown to be the tenth largest city in the state of Tennessee, and the epicenter for the State's largest exporting industry. Business In Focus Magazine took note, and dove into what has made Bartlett such a success over the years. Educational opportunities, livability assets, thriving industry and smart leadership has turned the City of Bartlett into "a dynamic place... (with) as much to offer families as it does people who are retiring, and companies with big and small business interests." Read the entire article from Business in Focus Magazine below.

They are adding 100,000 square feet to their Bill’s Place campus located here in Bartlett, TN. This new facility will have state of the art aesthetics to ensure a wonderful environment for students and staff alike. It will double their resident capacity, and add a gym, theater, outdoor pool, neuro-feedback room, sensory room, health clinic, yoga room, hair salon and family rooms for visits.
“We’re going to make sure we have the necessary support services to give all the young people the best that we have to help meet their greatest needs so they can leave here, return to their community and really have a better chance for success,” Lawler said.
Planning for the project began seven or eight years ago with the initial concept calling simply for adding a gymnasium to the existing boys’ center. The plan blossomed into the current 100,000-square-foot addition.
Bill’s Place is dedicated to William “Bill” and Marjorie Lawler, the parents of Patrick Lawler. Bill was born during the Great Depression and lost his mother when he was 2 years old. He grew up in an orphanage for a number of years, which led to a desire in his son to help children.
The Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with Youth Villages to help accomplish the impact they have on each of their students. We’ll be celebrating the holidays with them next week in our Holiday Heroes Annual Party and Gift event next week at the Bartlett Campus.
