Dickson County Help CenterThe Dickson County Help Center is a non-profit, public corporation chartered for the purpose of providing aid in the form of food, clothing, prescribed medication, temporary shelter and limited financial assistance to the citizens of Dickson County on an emergency basis.

Our address is 103 W. College St. in Dickson, Tennessee.

The Food Bank & Assistance Office is open:

Monday – Friday     9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

(We are closed for lunch from Noon – 1:00 p.m.)


The Thrift Store is open:

Monday – Saturday     9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.


The Dickson County Help Center exists to provide Christian spiritual guidance, emotional comfort and physical support for those persons caught in a temporary situation of need through the prudent use of gifts donated by the citizens and businesses of Dickson County.


We were established primarily to help Dickson County families with children at home, disabled adults, and the elderly in need, who receive little or no government assistance. These guidelines are extended to others in emergency situations like those displaced due to fires and natural disasters, such as floods and tornadoes.


The Help Center is overseen by a Board of Directors who are elected annually by concerned citizens called to a public meeting in April.
