ABOUT THE DICKSON COUNTY CRAIG MORGAN FOUNDATION: The idea for The Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation was born while Craig Morgan was serving as an Assistant Sheriff’s Deputy in Dickson, TN. The organization, a component fund of the 501c3 Craig Morgan Dickson County Educational Foundation, will support foster children in Dickson County and throughout Middle Tennessee. Craig’s continuing charitable mission is to eventually build and maintain a home, Billy’s Place, in Dickson County Tennessee for temporarily displaced children in Tennessee’s 23rd District (5 counties) and to provide lasting funding for the home. His long-term goal is to start additional Billy’s Place homes around the country.
