Nashville Rescue Mission
Hope Center is a 6 month Bible based residential recovery program for women dealing with alcohol and/or drug addictions. The program also supports those suffering from "other life-debilitating" problems. The program services single women as well as women with Children. For more information contact Nashville Rescue Mission or visit the Nashville Rescue Mission website.
Women’s Campus: Monday–Sunday Breakfast – 6:30 a.m. Lunch – 11:00 a.m. Dinner – 5:00 p.m.
Each night, hundreds of men, women and children find a warm bed and safety from the streets at Nashville Rescue Mission. We house an average of 800 men, women, and children each night (this includes anywhere from 25 to 85 children).
It is an intense, comprehensive, Christ-centered program designed to help men and women (18 and over) understand the reasons behind their struggle with addiction, homelessness, and other broken lifestyles—and what steps they need to take to rebuild their life on a solid foundation rooted in God’s Word and long-lasting solutions.
The Mission’s program doesn’t focus on just one part of a person’s life—we believe it’s important to affect a person’s entire life—physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and social. We are committed to restoring the whole person through a Christian approach that helps the homeless and addicted learn how much God loves them and gain the Biblical insight they need to lead a productive life in and for Christ.
