Who We Are

As we seek out genuine opportunities for others to engage life with dignity, strength, and health, Nashville Rescue Mission works in community collaboration to provide hope for today, tomorrow, and eternity.

We are driven by the desire to share the Gospel, and we strive each day to spread this unending message of hope.


In 1954, the Mission opened its doors to provide food, clothing and shelter to homeless men in the Nashville community. In 1968, the Mission expanded to meet the needs of the increasing numbers of homeless women and children in the community.

Nashville Rescue Mission is a Christ-centered community dedicated to providing hope for today, tomorrow and eternity to the hungry, homeless and hurting in Middle Tennessee.
