Cold Weather

Winter weather is hard on people who sleep outdoors. The Metropolitan Homelessness Commission together with Room In The Inn, Open Table Nashville, and the Nashville Rescue Mission are drafting a Cold Weather Plan to help coordinate this coming winter's cold weather spells.

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.

Project Homeless Connect

The Homelessness Commission will no longer host PHC Nashville, but we will support a coalition of service providers who plan to host a similar service event called Starting Point on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, for individuals experiencing homelessness. The event will likely be renamed and will be held on the campuses of Room In The Inn, the Downtown Clinic (United Neighborhood Health Services), and the Nashville Rescue Mission with a focus on medical services. For more information, please contact Quiana Jimerson, Community Coordinator at Room In The Inn, 615-251-9791.
