Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler opened a facility in Memphis for girls who have suffered abuse or neglect.

The facility is called Janie's House, and is running out of a Youth Villages location in Bartlett, and was named after the band’s hit song “Janie’s Got a Gun,” the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported. The residence can house about 14 girls and will provide therapy for the victims.

Tyler spoke about the song, which is about a girl who was abused by her father who had addiction problems.
