And don’t just take our word for it; we were recently certified as a 2021 Best Christian Workplace by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute (BCWI) for the second year in a row. The certification is based on an anonymous employee survey that measures workplace health in eight areas: fantastic teams, life-giving work, outstanding talent, uplifting growth, rewarding compensation, inspirational leadership, sustainable strategy, and healthy communication.
Vicki’s Why Story
Coordinator, Volunteer Services at Women's Campus
“I am a graduate of the Mission’s Life Recovery Program. I didn’t plan on staying in Nashville, but the Mission gave me a new life and now I get to pay it forward. I know there are lots of other places people can work, but this place—it’s the Lord’s House. It’s a place of healing. It’s a place of hope. Working here has given me purpose.”
Brian’s Why Story
Clinical Therapist, Men's Life Recovery Program
“I like the one-on-one connection I have with the men in our program. I have the opportunity to show them the love of Christ and help them deal with their guilt and shame. God works through these situations. I have a front-row seat to the healing, salvation, spiritual growth, and reconciliation that takes place here.”
Simone’s Why Story
Clinical Therapist and Life Coach, Life Recovery Program
“I feel that I am exercising my purpose whenever I show up and allow God's spirit to lead every interaction that I have, whether it be in group therapy, individual counseling, teaching various life skills, or even just engaging in casual conversation with the guests, program participants, and/or my fellow staff members. I have the privilege of watching the progress of miracles in action every day.”
Tucker’s Why Story
“I deeply believe in the work we do. To care for those in need, to feed them, give them a warm place to lay their head, give them clothes—this is what God has called me to while I am here. What makes this work worth it to me is the guests we serve. I am struck by how 'normal' they all are—they have a life, a childhood, hobbies, fond memories, a favorite baseball team, and a childhood hero. We really aren't that different. When guests look me in the eye and tell me how much they appreciate the work we do, that makes it all worth it to me.”
Denise’s Why Story
Case Manager, Women's Guest Services
“Working at the Mission represents a Divine appointment for me. Having worked as an executive banker for several years, I was spiritually called to prepare and serve the Lord among the poor.”
Health Benefits, Time Away From Work, Life Insurance and More
Eligible employees have medical plan options that give you the flexibility to choose the coverage that is right for you. Plans include a Health Savings Account with both employee and employer contributions. Telemedicine services are also available with all plans. You can also enroll in Dental and Vision plans.
Nashville Rescue Mission offers a generous Paid Time Off policy that allows new employees up to 27 days off their first year (pro-rated based on start date) for relaxation, holidays and to care for themselves or a family member in times of illness.
When life is getting difficult, it can help to talk with a professional. That’s why we have a Chaplain on staff as well as offer free counseling and referral services through the Employee Assistance Program.
As part of the Nashville Rescue Mission family, you can also enjoy other company-paid benefits like life insurance and short and long-term disability.
Student Loan Forgiveness
Created under the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Public Service Loan Forgiveness allows borrowers who work full-time for nonprofits to have their outstanding debt forgiven tax-free on Federal Direct Loans, after making 120 qualifying monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan.
Let us help you save for the future. Nashville Rescue Mission contributes 3% of an employee’s earnings after they have completed their first year of service. If you decide to contribute to the plan as well, you will enjoy a 50% match on contributions from 1% to 6%.
