About Us

Murci-Homes is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) residential agency serving individuals with severe/profound disabilities in a cluster of 9 group homes. Founded over 40 years ago in 1960 by the Murfreesboro Road Civitan Club (Mur-Ci), a new modern facility was opened in 1993 in Antioch, Tennessee, a Nashville suburb. Individuals come from Tennessee and the other southeast states.


Our mission is to improve the quality of life for each individual while assisting them to reach their full potential.


Mur-Ci Homes receives partial funding from the Federal Government’s Medicaid program and is classified as an Intermediate Care Facility for Mental Retardation (ICF/MR). The balance of funds necessary to operate the homes is provided by the Friends of Mur-Ci Homes, Inc. Donations to this 501(c)(3) are tax deductible and may be designated for the general fund, the endowment fund or a specific purpose. Please contact Nicole Kelley at murci@tds.net or 615-641-6446 for details on how you can help.


A team of dedicated specialists is required to operate the Homes under the direction of Nicole Kelley. A volunteer Board meets monthly and provides overall guidance coupled with fiscal responsibility. Board members include parents and business executives drawn from the community. The bylaws require that parents of residents serve on the Board.
