Temporary Emergency Services Inc. (TES) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families in crisis situations. Churches in the Tuscaloosa Community funded TES in 1945 to serve clients unable to receive assistance from local social services agencies.
We assist individuals and families in crisis situations in order to allow them to survive the immediate crisis they are encountering. Click here to see a list of the services we offer and how many clients/families have received these services.
TES operates its programs efficiently and effectively, thereby maximizing its limited resources, and the productivity of its employees. We utilize programs and services that have been successful for other public, private, and nonprofit organizations. TES and the Thrift Store serve residents of Tuscaloosa County on an as needed basis through donations received from United Way of West Alabama, local businesses, churches, and individuals.
