About Us

The mission of Wo/Men’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program is to empower adult and child survivors of domestic and sexual violence to enrich the quality of their lives. WRAP collaborates with the community to achieve a violence-free society.

Specifically, WRAP provides the following services to adult and child survivors:

  • 24-hour crisis line
  • Safe shelter (including food, clothing, toiletries, etc.)
  • Transportation
  • Individual counseling
  • Support groups
  • Hospital accompaniment
  • Court accompaniment
  • Case Management
  • Education/prevention programs
  • Emergency financial assistance
  • Advocacy
  • Referrals
  • Transitional Housing

These services are primarily offered in fourteen counties in West Tennessee and are provided free of charge by a dedicated staff and active, trained volunteers. WRAP services the counties of Madison, Gibson, McNairy, Henderson, Decatur, Benton, Crockett, Haywood, Hardin, Hardeman, Chester, Carroll, Henry, and Wayne Counties. WRAP has nine offices and two domestic violence shelters currently.

WRAP is the only agency in West Tennessee providing services to both sexual and domestic violence survivors. We have coordinated our efforts with those of local law enforcement agencies, attorneys, hospitals, social services agencies, state agencies, and court offices so that we can work together to provide the best services possible to the clients we serve. WRAP not only makes referrals to these agencies but also receives referrals from them as well as information and assistance.

WRAP began through community effort and as a volunteer organization. Volunteers still play a major role with WRAP. Volunteers are always needed for:

  • Crisis intervention calls on the hotline
  • Handymen/women for shelter repairs
  • Moving services for donations and relocation purposes
  • Hospital accompaniment
