Nashville Rescue Mission Celebrates Naming of Both Campuses

In response to the rising need for a safe, secure space to warmly welcome women and children experiencing hunger and homelessness, this family of friends has come together to open Middle Tennessee’s most significant refuge: Nashville Rescue Mission Linda & Mike Curb Women’s Center!

The culmination of three years, the January 2024 opening of the new campus ensures the feeding and housing of hundreds of moms and kids over the years ahead, providing all those in our care with a path to positive, productive lives in our community.

Not only is the new campus adding space to better accommodate vulnerable guests, it also allows the Mission to expand the services offered to help women and mothers with children move beyond a shelter environment and into independent, sustainable housing.

Here’s a snapshot of what those we serve are experiencing at the new facility:

  • Added beds in emergency services dorms
  • Increased number of family rooms
  • Expanded kitchen floorplan to adequately accommodate staff and volunteers
  • Increased seating capacity in the dining room
  • New chapel space with a larger stage and more seating
  • Increased restroom and shower capacities
  • Improved accessibility for individuals who have mobility impairments
  • Additional classroom, office, and meeting spaces
  • Increased meeting space for external partners offering “wrap-around” services in housing, education, employment, mental health care, and more
  • Increased number of guest lockers for storage
  • Brand-new playground, as well as an added play area for older children, so kids of all ages have safe places to play
  • Additional safe, private, and secure courtyards
  • Enhanced security
  • A welcoming main entrance and designated service entrance
  • Expanded parking


And on Monday, April 15th, donors, board members, volunteers, staff, and key community leaders including Mayor Freddie O’Connell, came together to recognize and thank Linda and Mike Curb for their lead gifts to help build the new Linda & Mike Curb Women’s Center and Men’s Center. The Curbs were celebrated for their generosity and support towards completing the $24 million capital campaign, debt-free. The women and children experiencing homelessness in our community will benefit from this beautiful 73,000-square-foot center for years to come.

The Mission expresses our profound gratitude to Linda and Mike Curb and all Building Hope Campaign donors for their financial contributions and unwavering support of Nashville Rescue Mission. Their support will help the organization continue to provide life-changing services to those in need.

To further celebrate the occasion, the Mission officially kicked off our 70th Anniversary year at this event. Founded in 1954, the Mission is celebrating 70 years of providing hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity.
