The Mission In My Words
As we face the challenges of a new year, I am moved to remember the Nashville Rescue Mission and their many good deeds.
Having worked with and actively supported the Mission for over twenty years, I am constantly amazed at the magnitude of their contributions to this community and to all of Middle Tennessee.
Most of you are aware of their commitment to feed, shelter and rehabilitate the homeless, but you may not be aware of their work with homeless women and children.
Alarmingly, this is the fastest-growing segment of the homeless population. Through their Family Life Center, the Nashville Rescue Mission has beds for 110 women and children. However, without the expansion and updating of this facility, the Mission will be unable to provide additional support to the single women, mothers and children in Middle Tennessee.
The Mission recently announced a major campaign to renovate and expand the facilities and services for women. They truly need your support in this very worthy endeavor.
As a father of three young sons, I can only imagine how traumatizing it would be for a child to be homeless, scared and hungry.
I sincerely hope you can find it in your heart to support the Nashville Rescue Mission and their expansion of the Family Life Center and Hope Center. The Mission has been a local nonprofit organization for 55 years now. Last year alone, they provided over 550,000 hot meals and close to 250,000 nights of lodging to needy individuals and families.
The Nashville Rescue Mission is a beacon of hope to those in the storm of homelessness. No matter what the cause, through the compassion and love of Christ, these tireless “Good Samaritans” feed, shelter and clothe thousands of lost souls each year. This beacon is lit by God’s love and it is the sincere hope of everyone at the Nashville Rescue Mission that they will find Him through their good deeds.
God Bless… Phil Valentine
