We work from a Housing First model that sees permanent housing coupled with wrap-around support as the first kind of treatment program or intervention that unhoused people need. We don’t require people to meet a list of demands about income, sobriety, mental health, or otherwise to earn or deserve housing. At OTN we believe that providing access to housing is the best way to end homelessness and that all people deserve to live with dignity and safety.
Our outreach team works intensively with unhoused friends to access housing resources, collect required documents, and navigate complicated application processes for various housing programs in town. In the midst of Nashville’s affordable housing crisis, this is no simple task. If you own or manage rental properties, are interested in partnering with our program, or are interested connecting your rental properties with MDHA’s Housing Choice Voucher Program, play contact Haley@opentablenashville for more information.
