MURFREESBORO – “Please join the Cannon County Child Advocacy Center in welcoming our new Community Education Coordinator, Presley Hosford,” announced Cannon County Coordinator Amanda Hammond.

Hosford, a recent graduate of Middle Tennessee State University’s Child Development and Family Studies program, is a familiar face around the Child Advocacy Center. She interned for two semesters and discovered her passion for advocacy. “My experience at the Child Advocacy Center so far has been nothing short of wonderful,” said Hosford. “I take pride in the fact that we work hard every day to protect children and help their families.”


Hosford is a certified family life educator, and her experience and dedication to protecting children and families made her the perfect new fit for the Center’s small team. “I am so proud to work with a team that is dynamic and continuously growing. I want to make Cannon County a safer place for children,” she stated.

As the Community Education Coordinator, Hosford’s job is to train adults how to recognize the signs and symptoms of child sexual abuse using the Darkness to Light training curriculum. Education is the first step to preventing child sexual abuse, and Hosford is eager to start teaching adults in Cannon County what they can do to protect their children and grandchildren.

The Child Advocacy Center is a nonprofit agency that works as a Child Protective Investigative Team with the Department of Children’s Services, Woodbury Police Department, Cannon County Sheriff’s Department, and the District Attorney’s Office to respond to child abuse cases, aggressively prosecute offenders, and help child victims and their families heal from the trauma.

Contact Presley Hosford at or call (615) 563-9915 to bring the Darkness to Light child sexual abuse prevention training to your church, school, business, or civic group.
