Domestic Violence Shelters

The TN Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence offers legal assistance and emergency financial assistance to those in need. While they also provide resources for batterer-intervention programs, please note that studies show there is little to no evidence that these programs are effective in ceasing abuse post-program. Fleeing domestic violence with your pet? Apply for RedRover’s Safe Escape Grant to cover the cost of pet boarding while you’re in shelter.
