The Columbus Home Children's Emergency Shelter is one of Catholic Charities of East Tennessee's cornerstone programs. It is a 24 hour/365 days per year shelter that accepts
children from birth to 17 years of age who have been removed from the home
due to allegations of abuse, neglect or other endangerment known as adverse
experiences. Over 6,800 children in Tennessee were removed from their homes
last year. Our goal is to assist the courts in keeping children out of the state's
custody and if possible placing them with appropriate relatives and providing
them with needed support services.
