Nashville, TN – Imagine this scenario: You’ve worked at a job you have had for a few years. You like your work. You get along so well with your coworkers that you feel comfortable enough to discuss your pay with them.

Nashville, TN – We are all navigating uncertain times. We don’t know when life is going to resume as normal. For most of us, that leaves unanswered questions and worries about the present and the future. Amid lost jobs, illness, closed schools, medical bills and more, the last thing you want to worry about is being evicted from your home during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

Nashville, TN – For Tennesseans who are dependent on public assistance benefits, a difference of $100.00 or $200.00 in their monthly budgets can dramatically affect the way they live.

Nashville, TN – When we think of domestic violence, we often picture physical abuse. But the truth is, abusive behavior within a relationship can exist in many forms.
At its core, domestic violence is an attempt by one partner to assert control over the other. It can include threats, insults, emotional manipulation, sexual coercion and a host of other behaviors. Abusers are nothing if not creative in their methods.

Nashville, TN – Veterans make up just 7 percent of the U.S. population. So it’s safe to say that for large swaths of our country, the realities of military service are somewhat removed from our daily lives and sphere of understanding.
Though the sacrifices made by veterans are brought to our attention on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the emotional or physical wounds that some vets carry are a constant, daily struggle.
