meeting our neighbors’ basic needs
Together, we can ensure all families have a stable place to call home, food to eat and the support they need in times of crisis.
what we’re up against
Families struggling to make ends meet are often one flat tire or unexpected medical bill away from not being able to pay their rent that month.
In Tennessee, one in seven families doesn’t know where they’ll find their next meal. More than 3,000 Metro Nashville Public School students have no place to call home—they live in cars, shelters or on friends’ couches.
