  • a pack n play for childcare (survivor’s babies)
  • short (3-4 shelf) bookcase, black, white or gray preferred. 

     

BHANs (Big hairy Bodacious Needs) :

  • A building (or two side by side houses, one small and one large) big enough to hold expanding staff, have room for our resource center and childcare, with a secure wing for short term  housing for newly released victims. A lovely place that shows our survivors they are valued, conveniently located near downtown Nashville, near bus route preferred.

    Or fully furnished apartments, centrally located, for short term housing for new referrals (1-6 months.) 

  • Funding for four urgently needed new staff to be able to meet increased need and referrals and to enhance the resources for healing we can offer.

Survivor Needs:

Thanks to your great generosity, we have an abundance of supplies for survivors and have no room to store more at present. The only exceptions are:

  • Hair straighteners 
  • Cell phones with SIM cards
  • Kits for new rescues: kits with X-Large sized women’s items (SEE LIST ) only.  Please use the drawstring bags noted- they really help with our limited storage space. Thanks! These small drawstring bags are ever so much more space efficient for our limited storage area. Bags are available on Amazon or we can provide if needed.
  • Reliable cars – only being able to live and get jobs with reasonable access to bus lines is quite limiting.
  • Gift cards for immediate survivor needs -   Walmart, restaurants, gas, Kroger, Visa, Mastercard, Target. 

     Please note: We cannot accept  clothing donations except as specifically listed here

Sponsorships or items for :

  •  birthdays for our girls and women- it’s time to lavish them with love! : Sponsor a gift, restaurant meal, party supplies  (amounts can vary but generally about $100-$150) Donate as usual, select “Direct Aid to Victims” in category and shoot us a note at the same time, saying it is for a birthday girl (info@endslaverytn.org

    With gratitude from us and those we serve-
