NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — City leaders celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Jean Crowe Advocacy Center, which assists victims and families when they come to court in Davidson County.

The center is named after the attorney who in 2014 asked then-mayor Karl Dean to undertake a domestic violence safety and accountability assessment. It found a lack of attention towards domestic violence in the city.

That lead to the creation of the center, and the Metro Department of Family Safety.

All services at the center are free and confidential.

It can be found on the main floor of the Birch Building downtown, open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
