Due to mitigating circumstances, I am forced to seek assistance and in the immediate area of where I am - there are NO services to assist community members who have lost employment (and I didn't qualify for unemployment)
Nonetheless, I found this facility on line and I called July 9th, 2014; the woman that answered the phone was absolutely HATEFUL......something that the name of the facility - LORDS PLACE INC. is contradicting to say the least.

With that said, I am more inclined to disavow my Christian faith because of people like her. It was UNCALLED FOR AND UNNECESSARY.

The Lord's Place provides, not only the essentials but, they provide individuals with the tools and skill sets that will help them improve themselves in life. This allows those individuals to break the cycle so that they are able to provide their own subsistance in life.

As a homeschooling mom, I am always on the lookout for a community project that welcomes teens. We participated in your annual fundraiser "The SleepOut". My son learned so much about what it is like to be homeless. We are very lucky to be where we are. We have a home and food. This opportunity to listen to, speak to and fundraise for those who had or presently were homeless was an eye opening and educational moment for him. He still talks about it today with his peers.
The wonderful thing is that the typical stigma these people have to live with did not present itself for my son. He was not afraid .Which for some reason , was the biggest question he received when he told people he was doing your event. " Aren't you afraid ?" You made it very relatable for a young mind. He was able to see them as a fellow human being with similar dreams and interests as his own. This was a direct result of the work that you do. It was a professionally run event. We laughed, we cried, we ate fantastic food, we participated in crafts, and met so many wonderful people. We can't wait to do it again!

One of my neighbors was being evicted last month. He is an acute alcoholic and he had no where to go. I took him to The Lord's Place on Australian where he entered their homeless program which gave him a roof above his head as long as he stayed sober. He was treated with great respect. After staying at the shelter for three weeks he has been able to return to Nashville, TN, where he'll work again as a productive member of society. Without The Lord's Place this man's case would have been hopeless.

The Lord's Place has been making a difference to my fellow community members for over 30 years! The leadership and entire team do life saving work with homeless individuals, families and children in the community. They provide a safe place to sleep, as well as training so individuals will have the skills and tools to survive on their own and break the cycle of homelessness. The Lord's Place makes a huge impact to the most vulnerable in our community. I highly recommend this amazing nonprofit!
