What We Do
If you’re in danger, need to speak with an advocate, have general questions about domestic violence or a specific situation you would like to talk through, please call the YWCA’s 24-hour Crisis & Support Helpline at 1-800-334-4628.
One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. Click here for more domestic violence stats.
The YWCA empowers domestic violence survivors to take control of their lives, while offering them safety and the resources to ensure their self-sufficiency.
We operate the largest domestic violence shelter in Tennessee. Our 51-bed Weaver Domestic Violence Center is a safe and welcoming place for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Men are sheltered through a partner nonprofit agency.
In addition to emergency shelter services, we offer women, men and children safety planning, case management, counseling, support groups, and community education.
