Welcome to

The Women's

Advocacy Center

Sharing Hope. Changing Lives.

 

At The Women's Advocacy Center we are committed to helping decrease domestic violence in  East Shelby County, Tennessee. We accomplish this by providing direct and indirect services to support women affected by domestic abuse. If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship and needs help, contact us now.

 

Many women with limited options are forced to shelter with their abusers during this pandemic. Being isolated and not having access to information can be frightening. If this is you, we want you to be informed. Help is available. See our COVID-19 page for information on what is happening across the state and in our community. 

Thank you to donors who continue to support our work! Your contributions impact the lives of women and children in Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, and Lakeland. Together we are making a difference.
