Embracing and Empowering Victims of Domestic and Sexual Violence
Any items donated would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!!!
In a census conducted in 2012, 460 domestic violence victims in Tennnessee, found refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing provided by local domestic violence programs. In addition to a safe place to lay their heads at night, shelter residents were provided with a variety of comprehensive services.
National Network to End Domestic Violence
WRAP has two welcoming places of refuge for those in need: WRAP House Jackson and WRAP House Trenton. WHJ and WHT provide temporary shelter for victims of domestic and/or sexual violence who require immediate shelter for safety reasons. Generally, residents shelter with us 30 to 90 days, during which time we work with residents to support them in taking steps to help assure their ongoing safety, in meeting needs and achieving goals, and in transitioning to more permanent, sustainable living arrangements. While in shelter, advocates assist residents in making plans to become self-sufficient, clarifying goals and creating a plan to reach them, providing information about resources, programs, and rights, and moving forward from their abuse in positive, constructive ways. Upon departing shelter, residents can continue to seek outreach services and/or move into transitional housing for those who meet criteria.
