Our Team is Running for NeedLink Nashville

Hello Friends & Family! NeedLink Nashville has served Nashville since 1912, when Big Brothers of Nashville first delivered coal, heating oil and food baskets to those living in the shanty town areas that lined the Railroad Gulch and Cumberland River Bottoms. Since then, NeedLink has continued to meet a variety of needs through wartime, floods, fires, tornados, epidemics and everyday emergencies. They have evolved to assist with short-term assistance when there are hardships which bring a family to the very brink of homelessness--when they are to be evicted or have had utilities disconnected. Utility companies accept NeedLink’s pledge to pay and will immediately re-establish service or cancel the order to disconnect. MDHA, Urban Housing Solutions and other property managers also trust in NeedLink’s ability to stop eviction proceedings immediately upon our pledge to pay. As the “Link” part of the name reflects, they also guide clients to other resources, our partners, who may be able to assist financially beyond our pledge or help a client with an issue discovered during our initial counseling (such as domestic abuse, hunger, physical and mental health issues). Please help our team help our Nashville neighbors in their time of crisis! On Saturday, December 7, 2019, we are running in the 39th Annual Downtown 5K Rudolph's Red Nose Run. We are raising monies for this event and would greatly appreciate your help! I hope you can consider joining me and helping our neighbors.

Thank you for being a part of our 39th Annual Downtown 5K Rudolph's Red Nose Run!

Your team can help us help our neighbors like Kendra. Our recommended goal is $1000 per team, which will help 5 families with their utilities, a down-payment, or their rent.

On behalf of our clients, our Board and our staff, thank you for raising monies for NeedLink Nashville.
