Imagine for a moment you are a mom having to stay in a shelter because you had no other options of safety and security for your family. Imagine the shame, the guilt, and the stigma associated with being a mom experiencing homelessness.
At any given time, the Mission shelters 250 women and children, with around 20% being mothers with children. And though the reasons each mom and child come to Nashville Rescue Mission may differ, they share the experience of rarely being honored or celebrated as mothers and women.
That is why every May, when Mother’s Day rolls around, Nashville Rescue Mission works with volunteers and staff to ensure every mother staying at the Mission is celebrated.
We invite you to join us as we honor the women staying at the Mission with this Mother’s Day Banquet—a day filled with music, a special luncheon, and goodie bags.
