Helping out

Childhelp USA is a national organization founded in 1959 to meet the needs of abused and neglected children. Among the programs it supports are residential treatment facilities (known as Villages), recruitment and training for foster care, and child abuse prevention, education and treatment programs. Locally, a Village near Knoxville is in development, and a chapter has been established in Nashville.

The first Wednesday of April was established in 1999 as the Childhelp USA National Day of Hope. Restaurants play a big role by signing on to donate proceeds from meals at designated tables. Among the Nashville restaurants participating on April 2 are Deer Park Grille, Kote’s and Princeton’s Grill, with more to be confirmed. For more information, log on to
