As we seek out genuine opportunities for others to engage life with dignity, strength, and health, Nashville Rescue Mission works in community collaboration to provide hope for today, tomorrow, and eternity.
In 1954, the Mission opened its doors to provide food, clothing and shelter to homeless men in the Nashville community. In 1968, the Mission expanded to meet the needs of the increasing numbers of homeless women and children in the community.
Nashville Rescue Mission is a Christ-centered community dedicated to providing hope for today, tomorrow and eternity to the hungry, homeless and hurting in Middle Tennessee.
Providing hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity to the hungry, homeless, and hurting.
We live in full anticipation that God will do in the ministry of NRM those things we are willing to believe Him for and trust Him to do.
We believe God has called and commissioned us to be ministers of His radical love, grace and mercy and we demonstrate that by treating those we serve in a way that honors that calling. We make God “visible” through hospitality.
We never stop learning and growing, but respond to every opportunity with excitement in order to reach our full potential.
We turn away from minimal expectations, choose excellence in everything we do and challenge those we lead to give their best to the ministry of NRM and the people we serve.
Culture of Honor
We honor those that have laid the path before us and bless those who labor among us, as we embrace the future ahead of us.
