Our work at Open Table Nashville would not be possible without the financial support of the individuals, community, and organizational partners who share the vision and work we do.
In case you’ve ever wondered what it is that we actually do at OTN, here is a numerical overview of some major victories in 2017:
And finally, we moved 67 PEOPLE into permanent housing and helped 30 people retain their housing in 2017! In this bleak and rapidly shrinking affordable/low-income housing climate, each small victory requires our friends (and us as allies) to fight an uphill battle, every step of the way. Going into 2018, we are still desperate for landlords who accept Section 8 vouchers, who are committed to keeping Nashville affordable, and some who can be flexible with background issues as our friends try to make a fresh start. If you are such a person or have leads, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected in ending homelessness in our community.
We look around us and can’t help but give thanks for all the people who have fought alongside us –– those who have supported OTN and our friends with their time and money, cried with us on the dark days, and celebrated with us every time the light broke through again. For each of these gifts, big and small, for the beautiful people who teach us about justice and hospitality everyday, and for each person that makes this work possible, we thank you for sharing the journey.
If you’re interested in sustaining OTN by becoming a monthly donor or giving a one-time gift, we invite you to do so here.
