You Have the Power…Know How to Use It, Inc. is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to educate, advocate and empower individuals and communities who are impacted by violent crime. Now celebrating its 22nd anniversary, YHTP was founded in 1993 by former First Lady of Tennessee, Andrea Conte, to advocate for victims and educate the community to prevent violent crime. YHTP raises awareness about crime and justice issues through victim advocacy, community education programs, brochures, and documentaries. Based in Nashville, YHTP is funded through private donations and grants.
We want to say thanks to those who gathered with us at City Winery to honor Virginia Trimble for her grace and dignity with our Powerhouse Award. Thank you for continuing to support our mission to empower victims of crime!
We’re happy to announce that we have received new grants from the Nashville Predators Foundation and the Frist Foundation! With these grants, we will be able to give more community safety presentations across Tennessee to larger audiences.
