Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation charted with the State of Tennessee on September 1, 2005 to serve the 4th Judicial District, consisting of Cocke, Grainger, Jefferson & Sevier Counties. Safe Harbor was established by a group of impassioned individuals to provide the coordination of necessary services in a child-focused and child-friendly home-like setting for our most vulnerable victimized citizens . . . our children.
Regretfully, in most cases, children have been abused by family members or people their family members knew and trusted. Working with law enforcement, Child Protective Services, specially trained medical and mental health providers and our District Attorney General’s Office, our goal is to make the process gentler and less traumatic for our children who have suffered so much.
Safe Harbor CAC brings the investigative team to the child in a warm, and welcoming environment where the child feels comfortable and safe to help minimize the trauma and to maximize the opportunities for healing and protection.
