Shelby County to Sustain Defending Childhood Work Beyond Federal Funding


After 5 years of U.S. Department of Justice sponsorship as a Defending Childhood site, Shelby County, Tenn., is set to sustain for the foreseeable future the work it has been doing both to limit and deal with children’s exposure to violence.

The partnerships Shelby County has formed with several entities have made this possible. But it is the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, located in Memphis (Shelby’s county seat), that is sponsoring phase 2 of the Defending Childhood Initiative to Address the Impact of Violence on Shelby County Children.
