Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) was launched nationwide in October 1987 as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations working on domestic violence issues and raise awareness. Over the last three decades, much progress has been made to support domestic violence victims and survivors, to hold abusers accountable, and to create and update legislation to further those goals.
Paramount Staffing wants to thank YWCA of Memphis for allowing us to contribute and be a part of their effort to protect, support, and provide housing to women and children when they most need it.
The YWCA Shelter is a 27-bed facility that provides the only 24-hours, 7-days-a-week emergency shelter to abused women and their children. To protect the safety of their clients, the shelter is in an undisclosed location. The YWCA is the only women’s shelter of any kind in the city that allows mothers of teenage sons to keep their sons with them, provided the boy is attending high school. Residents of the YWCA shelter are provided with counseling, referrals, and connected with resources that can help them begin their transition to a new life free of abuse.
We are humbled to be able to give back to the community, and take our customer service beyond the office space.
