Their vision is to restore hope, dignity and improve the quality of life for individuals and families facing financial hardship due to the loss of a job, loss of a primary provider either to death or incarceration, drug and alcohol abuse, fleeing a domestic violence situation or whatever life choice or circumstance has brought to them to this point. Always serving with a loving hand up, not hand out.
The Nashville Community Outreach And Resource Center will empower and bring hope to the under-served communities, disadvantaged families and homeless in the Middle Tennessee Area (or where ever we are needed) regardless of age, sex, race, religion or nationality.
They do mobile events throughout middle TN partnering with other agencies providing and hosting health screenings, fall community service fairs and free flu vaccine clinics for the homeless, under and uninsured, food boxes, back to school events with free backpacks, school supplies and other individual items as needed, women’s shelter events and helping to provide needs for families at Christmas such as toys, gifts, clothing and food.
