Our Mission is to save lives as we transform the way our culture treats domestic abuse.To prevent the negative outcomes of abuse from spouse or partner violence, racism, or intolerance by educating the community to uphold the dignity of every human being; to respect every person's right to be treated humanely, free from judgement and domestic violence abuse.
MAD21 (Make A Difference 2 1) is a nonprofit initiative to put a stop to domestic violence by educating the community on how to recognize abusive tendencies and seek help. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, we work at the grassroots level to address the problem of relationship abuse, providing clothing, care packages (go bags), food services, educational materials, and counseling, housing and shelter referrals for domestic violence victims.
We help victims create safety plans and find alternatives for support when they are prohibited to leave the state under court order because of children. In addition to providing support for victims, we work in tandem with other organizations to raise awareness, and engage community advocates.
Our ultimate goal is to prevent the negative outcomes of domestic violence and save lives as we transform the way our culture treats domestic abuse.
Our vision is to build one of the leading resources for healing and empowering people experiencing domestic violence and abuse across Tennessee and beyond to find freedom from domestic violence and abuse thanks to our work.
