Memphis Family Shelter
Emergency Shelter for Women and Children Escaping Domestic Violence
The YWCA Shelter is a 27 bed facility that provides the only 24 hour, 7 day a week emergency shelter to abused women and their children. To protect the safety of our clients, the shelter is in an undisclosed location. The YWCA is the only women's shelter of any kind in the city that allows mothers of teenage sons to keep their sons with them, provided the boy is attending high school. Residents of the YWCA shelter are provided with counseling, referrals, and connected with resources that can help them begin their transition to a new life free of abuse. To be admitted to the shelter, call the YWCA hotline at 725-4277.
