The neighborhoods we serve are located in a food desert, a place that lacks access to affordable and high-quality fresh food. Traveling by foot or bus to grocery stores in neighboring communities is difficult. We now have partnerships through Second Harvest with Whole Foods, Aldi and Sprouts Farmers Market, Starbucks and Trader Joe’s that allow us to recover food a combined 7 days per week and distribute the food in the community through mobile food sites. Click on the links below for a calendar with more info about each site.

Like to cook? You are welcome to cook a meal for ministry happening or prep for future meals needed.
7th - 12th grade students are invited to share a meal, learn about Jesus and/or receive advice on life skills that can help them navigate their dreams during and after high school.
We not only partner with the next generation by providing community events and mentorship for kids and teens, but we also stand with their families helping them overcome adversities. With single mothers and their kids being our main demographic of service, we have a ministry called Dream Center Moms. We encourage these women to plan for themselves and their children and to stop the cycle of distress.
They meet once a week to enjoy intentional community around a meal, and they receive other resources like counseling services and homeownership classes, that provide opportunities for growth emotionally, professionally and financially. Empowering single mothers can stop generational poverty in its tracks.

We offer weekly Community Nights for our neighbors and families to enjoy. We also host special events like block parties and community meals. Our partnership with the local police precinct and other community non-profits has also improved the perception of law enforcement in the community, and crime rates are down 25% due to the recently established West Nashville Precinct Community Engagement initiative. Police officers show up at our events with one goal: to protect, support and invest in our families.
**Monday, Wednesday and Thursday Community Nights are on hold
for the winter months starting Monday, November 4th.
Look for the big tent at the corner of 40th Ave. and Indiana. If you live in the neighborhood and need a ride, call or text 615-942-5559 by November 17th. Let us know where you live and how many need a ride.
Tuesdays-Thursdays during the months of June and July, we serve lunch to children 18 and under and provide events/activities following lunch through our Summer is for Kids Day Camp. This is a great opportunity for out-of-town or out-of-state groups to serve with us or local teens and teachers who are also out of school during these months.
