The largest emergency shelter in the region, this warm and welcoming 65-bed center is situated in a confidential location in Nashville. We welcome survivors and their children up to the age of 17-years old. Male survivors are housed in a separate, undisclosed facility. Stays are limited to 75 days. While in shelter, residents are paired with a case worker who helps them begin the process of healing and connects survivors with community services to help them become self-sufficient.
