Childhelp Children’s Center of East Tennessee Mental Health & Forensic Services for Victims of Child Abuse
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 free services for 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. CCCET 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
