Who We Are

Our Mission is to build a community where domestic violence victims can survive and thrive. Our Vision is to create a community free from domestic violence.

The Family Safety Center of Memphis and Shelby County removes barriers for victims of domestic violence by coordinating resources and helping them navigate the many services available to them. 

The Family Safety Center houses key agencies at one location and facilitates referrals to a wide network of other partner agencies to streamline services and improve outcomes for clients. Ultimately, we strive to reduce incidents of domestic violence and strengthen families in Memphis and Shelby County.
