Loss of Food Stamps can mean the Loss of Much More

This from TN
Code 71-3-154

(B) Whenever temporary assistance for a family is terminated for any reason other than the family's successful transition to economic self-sufficiency, the department of human services shall promptly so notify the department of health. Upon receiving such notification, the department of health shall take appropriate actions to monitor and protect the safety and well-being of the children within such family. Such departmental actions shall include, but not necessarily be limited to, one or more in-home visits with such children within thirty (30) days of the termination of such temporary assistance. Such in-home visits shall be performed by a nurse, medical
social worker or other health professional. In appropriate cases, the department of health shall make a referral to the department of children's services.
