On Monday, Steven Tyler was on-hand in Memphis, Tennessee to commemorate the opening of Janie's House, a shelter for abused and neglected girls. 

Tyler donated $500,000 to open the home.

Janie's House is, of course, named after the Aerosmith song "Janie's Got A Gun", which tells the story of a fictional girl who's abused by her family.  Tyler said at the "scarf-cutting" ceremony Monday, "This does my heart and my soul good."

Janie's House will house 14 girls at a time while they seek therapy and support following neglect or abuse. This is the second Janie's House in the country, the first was opened in 2017 in Atlanta.
