Our Lenten special offering will go to the work of Open Table Nashville. This organization exemplifies the emphasis on both mercy and justice, by providing tangible goods that help keep people alive while experiencing homelessness as well as walking with them to housing. They provide provide excellent training and advocate alongside those without homes in the halls of the legislature against laws that criminalize homelessness. West End has a special relationship through our sponsorship of one of their street outreach workers. This amazing individual knows folks experiencing chronic homelessness by going out to the places they stay. We have the ability to refer individuals to them and help their recently housed folks stay in housing with financial assistance.
The Lenten special offering will go towards our goal of collecting $10,000 to support the salary of one of these street outreach workers. In addition to funds, Open Table Nashville can also use donations that their street outreach workers can give to our friends on the streets - you can see their Amazon Wishlist here!
