AWIN welcomes The Sexual Assault Center as our community partner for the month of February.
The Sexual Assault Center was founded in 1978 to provide healing for children, adults, and families affected by sexual assault and to end sexual violence through counseling, education, and advocacy. SAC's vision is to work toward a world void of sexual violence.
Inclusivity is one of SAC's most important principles. SAC maintains a safe space that is representative of and welcomes people from ALL backgrounds.

Monroe Harding's mission is changing young people’s lives.

MH ensures that foster care youth and other vulnerable young people build a solid foundation of strengths, positioning them for success in adulthood. The organization provides children, young adults, and families with resources in the areas of Homes, Healing, and Opportunities through Engagement.

Renewal House serves more than 500 women and children a year through all of its programs combined. The organization helps women gain the skills to remain sober, give their children nurturing care, improve their physical and mental health, and secure employment. Long-term impact is profound, as women are able to provide stable housing and other basic family needs, avoid legal entanglements and become contributing community members. For the children, early intervention and prevention services lessen their probability of developing a substance use disorder and other adolescent behavioral health problems. Renewal House saves significant taxpayer dollars, decreasing state welfare, foster care, healthcare and criminal justice costs.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee works to provide youth facing adversity with the guidance they need to help them succeed by matching them with an adult mentor. The organization creates professionally supported mentoring programs to develop positive relationships between a Big and Little that have a lasting impact on a young person’s life.
You can be the difference. All youth have potential, they just need someone to defend it. One-to-one mentoring provides young people with the support and opportunities they need to help build successful futures. Littles dream big, and BBBS mentors empower them to reach their fullest potential.
There are a lot of Littles who want a positive role model in their life. More mentors are needed to ignite the power and promise of our youth. As a Big, you’ll change a young person’s life, but they’ll also change yours. Reach out to learn more about becoming a mentor today! https://mentorakid.org/become-a-big/>>
