If you suddenly lost your job or home, where would you go? Have you ever thought about the possibility of you or a loved one being homeless? All it takes is the loss of a job, illness, or unexpected life changing event and it could be any one of us.

Based on availability of funding, Sophia’s Heart can assist up to 250 individuals a year, including men, women and children.
Within the “homeless” arena throughout Nashville, Sophia’s Heart’s is atypical. Unlike other assistance programs that provide temporary shelter, Sophia’s Heart has the capacity to keep family members intact while offering structured programming and assistance; so often family members end up in separate facilities, disconnected from each other and unable to maintain the family unit. According to the 2012 Housing Inventory report, out of the 2,941 beds made available throughout Nashville, only one service organization outside of Sophia's Heart accommodated the entire family as a unit. The need is great but the resources are limited.
Sophia’s Heart encourages and strengthens families where they need it the most; truly providing a dignified space that they can call home and support services where families can experience the restorative power of hope as they work their way out of homelessness.
