About Bridges


Bridges Domestic Violence Center is the only domestic violence shelter in Williamson County. Our not-for-profit organization is dedicated to assisting victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse. If you have experienced domestic violence or your children have witnessed domestic violence, we recognize that the decisions you face are difficult ones. Our role is to provide a safe place for you to make those decisions and to regain control of your life.

We provide a 24-hour crisis hotline staffed by people who can help immediately, an outreach support group, and shelter at an undisclosed location. Our programs do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, class, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age or marital status.

Our services are supported by local law enforcement officials, government grants, corporations, foundations and individual contributions. We are a member agency of United Way of Williamson County.

Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to the belief that no man, woman or child, under any circumstance, should be subjected to domestic abuse.
