Established in 1983, the Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence is a statewide non-profit coalition of diverse community leaders and program members committed to the mission of ending domestic and sexual violence in the lives of Tennesseans and changing societal attitudes and institutions which promote and condone violence through public policy advocacy, education, and activities which increase the capacity of programs and communities to address such violence. The Coalition provides a wide variety of training and technical assistance on domestic and sexual violence to communities throughout Tennessee, including an annual conference. The funds requested in the application will support emergency financial assistance to survivors that is directly related to their experience of abuse and helps them to become safer. 158 of 175 survivors (90%) will report that the assistance they received helped them feel safer. At one month after receipt of the service, 79 of 88 survivors (90%) will report that the assistance they received helped remove barriers to safety.
