Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center, Inc. welcomes all inquiries from persons interested in volunteering their time and talent to aid the child-victims of abuse in Cocke, Grainger, Jefferson and Sevier Counties.

Everyone has some skill or resource that can benefit Safe Harbor’s operations and, thus, benefit the innocent child-victims of abuse in our district.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of volunteering your services, please contact our Executive Director, Donna J. Koester, by phone at (865) 774-1777 or via e-mail.

For the safety of all child-victims with whom we work, all applicants seeking employment or to volunteer with Safe Harbor must complete an in-depth criminal background check, prior to being accepted.
