The mission of the Avalon Center is to end power-based violence against men, women, children in the communities we serve with the goal of achieving social justice.
The Avalon Center was founded in 1984 as Battered Women, Inc. and was the first organization in the community to provide a safe haven for victims of family violence. The organization started as a grass roots movement in the community as people began to realize a need for services for victims of domestic violence. The Avalon Center has since grown into an important community resource providing comprehensive services to those affected by domestic and sexual violence. We now service the following 7 counties: Bledsoe, Cumberland, Fentress, Morgan, Rhea, Roane, and Van Buren. Avalon Center Services - All 100% FREE and Confidential * 24/7 Crisis Line

It is our goal as an agency to provide the best trauma-informed services possible to our clients. It is our firm belief that we as Advocates need to meet clients where they are at - as everyone is in a different place in their journey when they come to Avalon.
