Abused Women’s Services

The YWCA’s Abused Women’s Services division is dedicated to breaking the cycle of violence for women, children and families. Studies indicate 1 in 4 women have been a victim of domestic violence. Almost half of the law enforcement calls in Memphis are related to domestic violence. The YWCA helps abused women and their children secure safety, stability and build new lives free of domestic violence.How we help:Domestic Violence Hotline gives immediate help to callers, directing them to safety and resources.  Hotline:  901-725-4277Emergency Shelter provides immediate sanctuary to women and children who are escaping domestic violence. Victim Advocacy helps individuals navigate various systems for protection. Also, the YWCA collaborates with other organizations to advocate for systemic change across the community.Community Education fosters an understanding in the community of healthy relationships and how to get help if needed. We offer training to employers on how to recognize and help those impacted by domestic violence. We also offer counseling to victims and their families. We facilitate job training and offer GED tutoring which helps individuals become self-sufficient.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our primary goal is to assist women and children that are impacted by domestic violence, with opening the second floor of the shelter the objective. While the immediate need for many is emergency shelter, we are increasing our proactive strategies as well. This includes providing more counselors at the shelter, to reduce the number of victims that return to their abuser. We are also planning an annual men's event, which will include mentoring and engaging men to be more visible in reaching solutions. We are also increasing our visibility and efforts to inform the community that domestic violence affects everyone. If you are not directly impacted, you are impacted as a tax payer due to law enforcement and court costs. Also, studies show that 70% of inmates were exposed to domestic violence as children. The success of this work is difficult to quantify, but the costs of not doing this work are increased crime, a cycle of poverty and maybe even death if someone comes to the shelter and we have to turn them away.  

See comments under Goals section. 

Our strengths for doing this work include knowledgeable leaders and staff  well respected in the community, and recognized as a resource for domestic violence activities. Also, we own a shelter facility that is well maintained and debt free. We have access to training and resources from the national YWCA Association and have discussed partnering with YWCA Nashville on domestic violence strategies.
