Calling our Crisis & Support Helpline (1-800-334-4628) or texting us at (615) 983-5170 is the first step in accessing the Weaver Domestic Violence Center. 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 45 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.
Pet Shelter Regardless of their own crisis, some individuals and families refuse safe shelter if they cannot bring a beloved pet. YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee is committed to every possible action to bring more people out of abusive situations and into a place where they can begin healing and planning a bright future. Our new Pet Shelter will remove a barrier to safety and allow pets and people to escape abuse together.
