Cold Weather

Winter weather is hard on people who sleep outdoors. Our community including Room In The Inn, Open Table Nashville, the Nashville Rescue Mission, OEM, the Mayor's Office, the Metropolitan Homelessness Commission, Safe Haven Family Shelter, Mental Health Cooperative, 2-1-1, and others have come together to create a Cold Weather Community Response Plan. Please go to Room In the Inn or the Nashville Rescue Mission to seek shelter.

Homelessness Commission Initiatives and Programs

How's Nashville

The Homelessness Commission launched the How's Nashville campaign in 2013 to foster collaboration in our community around solutions for homelessness.

Adopt A Meter

Nashville has 23 blue donation meters posted in high-foot-traffic areas along sidewalks in the downtown area. Donations will cover housing and utility deposits, basic furniture and household goods for people moving from the streets into permanent housing.
