Every day for over 55 years, hurting people have come through the doors of the Nashville Rescue Mission to receive the very basics of life. A warm, nutritious meal instead of scraps from the trash. A safe, clean bed instead of cardboard and concrete to sleep on. Bathrooms, showers and clean clothes instead of living in filth.
In addition, they receive a message of hope instead of judgment and condemnation. A listening ear instead of being ignored. Care and acceptance instead of violence and rejection.
But we provide so much more than just the “basics” in our Hope Center, Anchor Home and Barnabas House. There is always someone to pray with or receive counsel regarding the struggles of daily living. For the men and women who join our life- recovery programs, a whole new start in life is possible. They begin to experience the love of Christ that brings understanding and conviction leading to a newness of heart.
Plus, they gain the strength to cast off old ways and adopt new healthy ones in many areas of their lives. They truly receive, “beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.”
You, our faithful friends, are a special part of the life transforming work of the Nashville Rescue Mission. You help us provide more than “the basics.” You help us give something more. More than a meal…more than a bed…you give hope.
We are especially thankful to God for you. And so are the men, women and children who are blessed through this ministry.
