OTN is partnering with local congregations to provide bimonthly shelters on the second and fourth Fridays of every month. Resource Shelters allow for a consistent place to connect our un-housed friends with needed services and resources like birth certificates, housing applications, foot clinics, first aid, and haircuts. Guests also receive good food, hot showers, fresh clothes, and a safe space to relax and connect with volunteers. Volunteers help set up beds, serve dinner, cut hair, offer foot care, provide for basic medical needs, stay as innkeepers, and help with clean up. We are currently partnering with Barth Vernon United Methodist Church and Hillcrest United Methodist Church to provide these spaces to rapidly re-house chronically homeless and medically vulnerable individuals and couples who are desperately need in housing.
If you want to volunteer at one of the shelters or can provide supplies, please contact Anne at Volunteer@opentablenashville.org.
