Clarksville Area Urban Ministries’ SafeHouse program provides inclusive and trauma-informed advocacy services to Survivors of domestic violence and their minor children. Services are available to anyone victimized by domestic violence including women, men, LGBTQ+, children, Survivors with disabilities, and Survivors from historically marginalized or underserved populations. SafeHouse staff are available 24 hours daily to assist anyone in need through our crisis hotline.
All services are free, confidential, and available as a Client in our residential program or in our non-residential program. Our service areas primarily include Montgomery, Stewart, Houston, and Cheatham Counties in Tennessee. In response to Covid-19, Clients have the option to receive non-residential services via secure videoconferencing technology to prevent risk for exposure to the virus. Our goal is to provide comprehensive services to move our Clients from surviving to thriving in a life free from abuse.
We offer 24/7 access to our residential program to provide safe shelter to Survivors and their minor children fleeing from domestic violence. Residential clients do not only receive shelter, but advocacy and case management services to help them plan for the “What next?”
Services are available to Clients who seek support as they navigate ending their abusive relationships, but do not necessarily need safe shelter. A Case Manager is available to provide mobile advocacy services, in-person, at discreet and confidential locations or remotely through a secure video-conferencing program. Survivors leaving our residential program to transition into their own permanent housing can also receive aftercare services for additional support.
Our Residential and Non-Residential Case Manager provide support and individual advocacy services to assess each Client’s needs and to establish Client led goals. Case Managers support Clients in obtaining employment, transportation, housing, medical care, behavioral health treatment, government benefits, financial assistance, community referrals and any additional assistance needed to support the goals set by the Client.
