Voices of the Mission: Mothers’ Gratitude

For over 54 years, Nashville Rescue Mission has provided thousands of women and children with meals, a safe place to stay, and life-changing programs that help with various issues they face. But the most important thing the Mission provides them with is hope.




“If not for Nashville Rescue Mission, my four kids and I would be living in my car. We had nowhere else to go.”

“Ms. Lanitra (Kayla’s Case Manager) helped me in more ways than I can count. I knew she genuinely cared about me and my kids. She is more than just a case manager, she has become my friend. She listened to me when I needed someone to talk to. But the biggest help of all was her assistance in finding housing for me and my kids. I don’t know what I would have done without her help.”




“I never imagined I’d be spending my summer living in a homeless shelter with my son. But when you’re running for your life, the need to be in a safe place outweighs the comfort and luxury of summer vacations.”

“I do have hope. I can see a light at the end of a long tunnel. I’m ready to put in the work. I’m thankful for those who make this program possible so that someone like me can have a roof over my head, food to eat, a safe place to sleep, and the chance for a better future for me and my son. I owe you a debt of gratitude.”





“Being homeless isn’t something that I wanted but having the Mission in the midst of it has been a lifesaver. It’s giving me a chance to get back on my feet.”

“I love the Mission, I love what you stand for, and I love how God is a part of everything. If I could thank those who support this organization, I would say thank you for the thoughts of helping me, a person you may not know, thank you for giving me that little bit of hope—it is so very much needed and appreciated. Thank you for allowing Him to use you to help me, to help us—thank you from the bottom of my heart.”





“If the Mission wouldn’t have been here when I needed them, I don’t know what I would have done …”

“I’m grateful for this place. If I had to pay to stay here or somewhere else, I couldn’t do it. I don’t know what I would do. I’m so grateful. My kids can lay their heads down at night and sleep on comfortable beds. We have a shower … we can take baths every night. It’s amazing. And I’m grateful.”

Your support goes a long way in helping women and children find the help and hope they need. Your gifts show them there is a God who loves them and that He wants them to have a new and better life.
