W.O.M.E.N.’s Support Group

Our Support Group has things in place for us all to celebrate our first (invitation only) Sisterhood Christmas Support Group Wednesday, Dec 19th. Our Domestic and Sexual Violence department and volunteers have been working very, very hard getting donations for this event.  The purpose of this event is to celebrate our clients ability to heal from past domestic violence and sexual assault while learning their worth and power. As always, we encourage empowerment and uplifting education pertaining to domestic violence and sexual assault. Not all victims live to tell their stories. For us it is important that all women dealing with abuse of any kind know that they have the power to control their life, so if you are a victim – don’t wait, get help and get out now! We are very excited to share with the public the support we have here in Davidson County and the 13 surrounding counties. To keep such support groups going we need your help. It take a community to keep a community and it’s member’s safe. Click on the donate button and support our programs today.

The Big Payback

Now’s the time – The Big Payback is here!

 

 

 

     We’ve been counting down the days to The Big Payback, and it’s finally here! The excitement surrounding 24 hours of Middle Tennesseans coming together to support the nonprofit community is contagious. And thanks to supporters like you, we are able to continue our vital work in bridging the gaps to reduce health disparities while making a positive impact in Middle Tennessee.   In the past three years, more than $6.75 million has been raised for our community. Let’s rally together to make The Big Payback 2018 even BIGGER.   

 

 

Our Cause Domestic violence can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender. It can happen to couples who are married, living together or who are dating. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels.

 

 

  • One in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime.

  • Nearly three out of four (74%) of Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence

  • On average, more than three women and one man are murdered by their intimate partners in this country every day

 

Abuse is physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that frighten, intimidate, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure or wound someone. Take a stand with us and help us stop domestic violence in Nashville Davidson county and surrounding areas. Our mission is to bridge the gaps to reduce health disparities. The women and children of our community are counting on your time and donations. Thank you so much in advance for your support.
