Who we are:

Led by the words and acts of Jesus, we listen to our neighbors experiencing hardships and partner with our community to build toward dignity, healing, and sustainability.

At People Loving Nashville, we are dedicated to creating a consistent and safe community by providing essential relief to the most vulnerable among us. Starting with food, clothing, and survival supplies, we aim to meet immediate needs while fostering trusted relationships. These connections open doors to vital resources, from obtaining IDs to navigating housing options. Our holistic Restoration program offers a place for work and healing at our flagship coffee shop, Paradeisos Coffee Company, supporting individuals as they transition from the streets to stable homes. People Loving Nashville is there every step of the way, guiding the journey from homelessness to hopefulness.

  • Monday Street Gathering, our largest street outreach, is held in the heart of Downtown Nashville.
  • ​Wednesday Encampments, we visit specific encampments that receive little or no other assistance.
  • Thursday Gathering, we serve micro-income apartment complexes where many friends from the streets find their first stable home. ​
  • Wednesday through Friday our Restoration Program, provides body, mind, & soul enrichment resources to help newly housed individuals learn, grow, & heal from trauma to help them become sustainable within housing again through work.

Our organization comprises six different departments:

  • The Administrative department keeps the organization moving forward by handling all of the finances, organizational development, HR, and general administration. 
  • The Development department uses the power of storytelling to inspire, educate, and invigorate our community to see their neighbor through the lens of love & dignity. 
  • The Relief and Community departments oversee all arrangements to put on each weekly gathering as well as other community initiatives both involving volunteers, staff, and partners coming together to set a table to meet immediate physical needs as well as spiritual and emotional needs.
  • The Connection department works to handle the individual care of friends and neighbors the organization chooses to work alongside to build uncomplicated bridges to resources ranging from IDs to physical and mental health to addiction and recovery as well as housing navigation.
  • Lastly, our PLN Industries and the Restoration Program walk alongside those who have transitioned or are transitioning off the street to build a path to sustainability through creative therapy, life skills, and employment opportunities.
