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.”
Doug’s Why Story
Assistant Director, Men's Guest Services
“I graduated from the Mission’s Program in 2013 and came on staff a few months later. I started out in Operations before moving into Guest Services. I love to serve others. I get excited at the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. Whether it is offering a word of encouragement or opening the door for someone—you never know what that person is going through or what impact a small gesture of hospitality may have on them.”
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%.
