Shelter...for immediate CRISIS intervention

Emergency shelter services are based upon a belief that victims of domestic and sexual violence have the right to a safe place to live, knowledge advocacy, and ongoing supportive services to help them meet their needs in times of crisis. It is our belief that the cycle of domestic abuse can be broken when victims are given options and opportunities to increase their knowledge and develop a support system. To accomplish this end, we provide a 5 bedroom multifamily shelter, 24 hour crisis line, advocacy, counseling and supportive services.


Transitional Housing with Supportive Services...for when you have nowhere else to go

The Transitional Housing Program is based upon the knowledge that many victims return to their abuser because they believe they have no other options. We also recognize employment and household management skills must be developed in a supportive environment to create life-long solutions. The Lodge is a multifamily dwelling where clients live together as they begin a new safe life and receive the help they need to pursue employment, education, and independent living skills.

Support Groups 

Genesis House facilitates a support group every Tuesday night from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  To provide victims and surviors of domestic violence a safe place to meet and share their experinces, share ideas, and provide emotional support to one another.  Shavonda Jones facilitates our support group activities and Amanda Gore coordinates the children's activities.  Speakers from area community service agencies are encouraged to participate in workshops or support groups being conducted throughout the year.  We are currently working on workshops that will include: Cooking (30 minute meals), Money Management, Job Readiness, Order of Protections, Introduction to the Court Process and more.  

If you would like to attend support group or if you are interested in speaking at a support group/workshop, please contact us at 931-526-5197.  Please call us for support group location and directions.  Attendees will be elgible for a door prize at support group.
