Domestic Violence Care

Domestic Violence Care

In 2018, AGAPE acquired Morning Star Sanctuary domestic violence services.  Since then, AGAPE has had the privilege of continuing Morning Star’s legacy of care and hope, while expanding services to address a growing need for domestic violence services in the Nashville/Davidson County area.

The three flagship services of AGAPE’s domestic violence care include:

  • The Morning Star Sanctuary Domestic Violence Shelter to provide emergency shelter to victims after leaving an abusive relationship.
  • Court Advocacy Services in partnership with the Metro Office of Family Safety to assist victims of domestic violence in obtaining Orders of Protection.
  • A Mentoring Program to provide a safety net of counseling, education, and financial literacy training to survivors.

Need immediate emergency shelter assistance?  Please call our 24/7 hotline at 615-860-0003.

  • Emergency Shelter
  • Orders of Protection
  • Community Support


Domestic violence can affect an individual in any walk of life. It knows no barriers on age, race, socioeconomic status, relationship, etc. Often times when someone is experiencing domestic violence they feel isolated from their support system and may have nowhere safe to turn.
