For 120 years, the YWCA has helped women, children and families in Nashville and Middle Tennessee build safer, more self-sufficient lives.

We do this by operating the largest domestic violence shelter in Tennessee so women and children fleeing abuse can heal. We empower youth to break down negative gender stereotypes through Girls Inc. and AMEND Together. We provide the tools needed to become successful in work and life through Dress for Success and the Family Literacy Center. Our programs are FREE to the thousands of people we serve each year and are offered to everyone.

1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
Girls Inc. is making all girls strong, smart, and bold!
