The YWCA of Nashville & Middle Tennessee helps women move from safety to self-sufficiency to success. They operate the largest domestic violence shelter in the state of Tennessee, operate a 24-hour a day, seven day a week crisis and information line, provide free adult education to women and men and mentor girls in Metro Nashville elementary and middle schools through their Girls Inc.® program. The YWCA exists to educate, encourage and break down barriers that perpetuate racism, violence and hopelessness.
TBHC Delivers supports the YWCA of Nashville and their Re-New program. Re-New at the YWCA was founded in 2010 to help women who are moving from safety to self-sufficiency create a real HOME for themselves and their families. Re-New furnishes the apartments of some of the women and children who are participating in the YWCA's Transitional Housing Program. Clients are selected based on their needs and existing resources. Re-New at the YWCA is a completely volunteer-run program. In addition to furniture donations, dedicated volunteers provide a pantry full of food and stock refrigerator staples prior to the move-in date at each Re-New apartment. As of November 15, 2015, Re-New has furnished 120 homes for survivors of domestic violence and their children.
