Homeless Services


Many of our Nashville neighbors do not have secure or regular housing. It is estimated that as many as 6,000 may live in shelters, on streets, in cars and in motels. Others may be moving between homes of families and friends. There are many reasons why men (particularly veterans), women and children become homeless including low incomes, poor health and domestic violence to name a few.

Homeless Services:

Medical Services: We provide a comprehensive medical services including laboratory testing and pharmacy assistance.

Counseling: Counselors and case managers are available to assist individuals to plan for the future.

Psychiatric Care: Psychiatric nurse practitioners are available for mental health assessment and to prescribe and manage medications.

Alcohol and Drug Program: A 12-week program is available to assist individuals in confronting their addiction as well as their behavioral health needs.

Mobile Clinic: The mobile clinic is able to provide comprehensive medical care to those who are unable to come to a regular clinic location. With two exam rooms, the mobile clinic regularly visits lunch programs and area programs.
