Sharing Hope. Changing Lives.
At The Women's Advocacy Center we are committed to helping decrease domestic violence in East Shelby County, Tennessee. For many in our community, staying safe at home during this pandemic is unrealistic as women feel helpless, isolated, and trapped at home with their abusers. If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship and needs help, contact us now.
Across the country communities have seen an increase in instances of domestic violence. As many of those communities begin Phase 1 of a reopening process, there are some federal guidelines to help ensure the transition is as safe as possible. See our COVID-19 page for more information.
Thank you to those who supported our #GivingTuesdayNow event. We appreciate you and all those who have given to support the work we do for women and children in our community.
