Summary

The tornado that ripped through Nashville on March 3rd left hundreds of people in our neighborhood without homes, jobs, transportation and other loss. Martha O'Bryan Center is Nashville's oldest nonprofit working from the heart of our city's largest housing project with a mission to defeat poverty. Our Tornado Relief Fund will purchase basic needs and help set up new homes for our families impacted by the tornado.

Challenge

Hundreds of East Nashville individuals and families --including many of our students, teachers and neighbors at Martha O'Bryan Center-- lost homes, cars, jobs and more in the tornado. In a community with high poverty, this has further destabilized peoples' lives and thus made more difficult our mission: to defeat poverty in one generation.

Solution

Our Tornado Relief Fund will stabilize families in need of basic supports (such food, transportation and clothing) and new homes (by purchasing household supplies like linens and utensils) so that they can focus on the education and employment work that will propel them and their children forward towards prosperity.

Long-Term Impact

By providing our families stability, the Tornado Relief Fund will lay the foundation for our families to thrive in school and work. With basic needs met, our neighbors can then rise up out of poverty, with the support of our proven cradle-to-career, whole family programs.
