HIGHLIGHTS

SOPHIA’S HEART FOUNDATION TO EXPAND COMPASSION PROGRAMS

 

 

 

Sophia’s Heart announced, in November, the gift of a 76,000 square foot facility in Nashville. This gift, worth over $2 Million will be the new location of Sophia’s Heart’s “Compassion Nashville” Project located at 1034 W. Eastland Ave in Nashville.

 

Sophia’s Heart plans to expand their current compassion programs in the Nashville area benefiting children and families in need. Sophia’s Heart’s “Compassion Nashville” Project will initially focus on three main programs:

 

Performing Arts Educational Programs - after school Music & Arts Programs including a Contemporary Choir, Dance Team and Audio & Video Recording and Engineering Training classes.


Transitional Home – transitional housing for children and families displaced from their homes. Educational programs and life skills training will be provided.

 

Community Service - we will provide tutoring and life skills for qualified young adults who desire the opportunity to improve their lives.

 

“Our vision at Sophia’s Heart includes programs to house and restore the lives of the economically challenged and families that have been displaced from their homes due to unfortunate circumstances,” said Danny Gokey, “This is a great opportunity for Sophia’s Heart and we are asking for financial support from local organizations, community leaders, and our supporters to help reach as many families that need our assistance.”

 

Sophia’s Heart will use this gift to impact and change lives for children and families in our community. One Heart...Touching Many. To make a donation to support the Sophia’s Heart “Compassion Nashville” Project, please visit our web site at https://www.sophiasheart.org/donate.php.

 

Sophia’s Heart Foundation was founded by Country Music Recording Artist and American Idol finalist, Danny Gokey. Sophia’s Heart exists to help mend and heal the hearts of children and families who have been touched by poverty, sickness, disease, broken families and broken dreams. One Heart...Touching Many.
