The Children’s Advocacy Center of Hamilton County (CACHC) announced a pledge of $25,000 over the next fiscal year from the Corina Field Carroll Fund. Anna Carroll, chairman of the board of the fund, announced the generous pledge at the CACHC’s Volunteer & Donor Luncheon held on July 19. The Corina Field Carroll Fund was established in memory of Miss Carroll’s late mother, Dr. Corina Carroll, who passed away after a four-year struggle with ovarian cancer. The CACHC will use the gift to expand their therapy program for abused children.

Miss Carroll, a 17-year-old Girls Preparatory School student, served as a guest speaker for the luncheon. She said, “a pediatrician in the Chattanooga-area, my mother believed nothing was more important than protecting children, who are simultaneously the most innocent and the most vulnerable members of our community. The fund's goal is to operate in a way that reflects the values my mother had in life and has selected to assist the Children’s Advocacy Center of Hamilton County to fund expansion of the Center’s counseling services for abused children and their families to help break the generational cycle of child abuse in the region.

“The Corina Field Carroll fund has received much generous support during its short lifetime -- from individual donations to those involved in helping us plan our next moves. One young man, a seventh grader at McCallie School, asked that in lieu of birthday presents, his friends and family made contributions to the Fund and their support yielded $1,500 in donations. It is this kind of selfless enthusiasm we have received in response to our efforts that makes me believe the people of this community agree about the importance of this cause and are willing to support those committed to protecting the children of the Chattanooga area."
