Janie’s Fund

Aerosmith’s frontman, Steven Tyler, has continued the ongoing journey of helping survivors of physical and emotional abuse. Since it’s start in 2015, Janie’s Fund has raised more than $4.5 million dollars to aid women and girls who are trying to re-build their lives.

After talking with many women recovering from traumatic experiences, Steven Tyler was inspired to take action. He wrote and released “Janie’s Got A Gun” in 1989, about a severely abused girl. His fight to bring awareness to the subject didn’t stop there. Now, he has donated $500,000 to renovate an 82-acre home in Memphis, Tennesee- Janie’s House.

The focus is to help 14 girls at a time, 26 to 30 girls annually, and give more than just tlc- for as long as possible. The house is the second center to open under Janie’s Fund. The first home opened in Atlanta last year and a third is planned to open in Las Vegas later in 2019.
