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.

Based on recent data from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (2020), 39.6% of Tennessee women and 36.8% of Tennessee men experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner rape and/or intimate partner stalking in their lifetimes. Domestic Violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. AGAPE aims to empower victims to break the cycle of violence that controls their lives.
