KCHA Youth Protection Initiative

Protecting the children that depend upon us!

In an effort to help ensure the safety of minors served by its programs, the Knox County Housing Authority has adopted a Youth Protection Policy for Service Providers, which requires contractors and their subcontractors to perform criminal background checks on employees, volunteers and agents who, in the scope of providing services to the Authority, may have more than limited contact with or supervision of minors.  The policy also ensures those contractors and subcontractors carry adequate insurance coverage protecting against incidences involving minors, under either a General Liability policy or a separate Abuse and Molestation policy.
