we aim to allieviate CRISIS LIVING.
Our programs serve under-resourced, single mother led families in the West Nashville area with focus neighborhoods of service: Clifton Pike/40th Avenue corridor, Historic Preston Taylor, Village West Apartments, and the Skyview Apartment complex.
We meet basic needs, provide family-strengthening tools, and also facilitate community building events, all in an effort to increase the safety and quality of life in the neighborhoods we serve.
We have programs that serve our community seven days a week. We’ve set up a ministry to protect and empower our single moms, students and families.
We are now feeding over 1200 people a month, and have grown from 25-30 people at one weekly Community Night to 65-70 people spread across three Community Nights. We have scheduled ministry programs available for the community seven days a week, but there is a lot of behind the scene impact that happens on a daily basis. It’s in these quiet moments where we earn equity. We are not here just to offer a bandaid. We are in it for the long haul with this community sometimes to heal wounds that have never been touched or acknowledged.
“It's incredible to say we feed thousands but that's just meeting basic human rights. If we get too excited about that it lets people off the hook. The empowerment happens in the relationship and the unpredictable situations that arise and we show up.” TJ Fletcher, Executive Director
