24-HOUR CRISIS LINES
We can be easily reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling either of our Crisis Lines. You will immediately be put into contact with a trained advocate or staff member who is available to listen, answer questions, provide emergency support, and assist in safety planning.
Domestic Violence Crisis Line: (615) 896-2012
Sexual Assault Crisis Line: (615) 494-9262
Sometimes you need a place to seek safe shelter. If you find yourself fearing for your safety in your home due to domestic or sexual violence, consider staying with us. We operate one of the largest safe shelters in Tennessee, offering women, men, and their minor children a safe haven from violence. The Bernard House has 12 motel-like bedrooms and is capable of temporarily housing up to 48 people, providing residents the opportunity to regain their lives apart from violence.
