We See Potential

 

Nearly 17% of Nashville residents live in poverty – a rate higher than the state of Tennessee or in the entire United States. Add in the lowest minimum wage in the nation, and even people who are working can’t rise above the poverty line.

Solving the problem begins with intentional engagement and significant relationships. It demands we focus on the potential of the person. We create an environment for self-sufficiency by connecting unemployed and underemployed people with training and mentorship that leads to a flourishing work life.
