The Way of Hope’s mission is for every homeless woman and child in Murfreesboro to have a comfortable and safe place to sleep and not have to be out in the elements or on the street.
They are an emergency overflow shelter program. Their locations vary from night to night as they are housed in different churches throughout the community. These churches and their volunteers provide a safe place to sleep, a good meal, breakfast and sometimes a sack lunch. Not all of the churches have showers, but a few do, and if available those are a blessing.
