Mental Health Services for Victims of Child Abuse – $130,000
One of the first Children’s Advocacy Centers established in the State of Tennessee, Childhelp opened the Childhelp Children’s Center of East Tennessee (CCCET) in 1995. Over the past 29 years, the CCCET, in collaboration with its Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT), has provided services for well over 10,000 children in East Tennessee. CCCET provides a multi-disciplinary array of direct services to children (under 18 years of age) and their non-offending family members who are experiencing the investigation of, and recovery from, child abuse and neglect. It remains the only agency providing these services in Knox County.
“When you’re at the Center, it is such an uplifting place. When I leave work every day, I know that the children we saw today are being helped.”
Teresa Goddard, Former Director of Program Advancement
