SERVICES

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.

DONATIONS

Survivors of domestic violence are often forces to leave their belongings behind when they need to quickly flee for safety from an abusive partner. Thanks to your generosity, we are able to supply Clients and their children with essential items including hygiene products, clothing, diapers, food and household furnishings when Clients transition form our residential program into their own permanent housing.
