West Nashville Dream Center
700+ community members attend our programs: mobile food, community events and Dream Center moms.
The West Nashville Dream Center is a 501(c)3 organization serving an under-resourced community in West Nashville with a goal to improve the safety and quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods. Supplemental resources that meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs power our cause. We offer family-strengthening tools and social activities for all ages. This mission drives our goal to see our neighbors find their passions and thrive at their full potential.
We are now feeding over 1200 people a month, and have grown from 25-30 people at one weekly Community Night to 65-70 people spread across three Community Nights. We have scheduled ministry programs available for the community seven days a week, but there is a lot of behind the scene impact that happens on a daily basis. It’s in these quiet moments where we earn equity. We are not here just to offer a band-aid. We are in it for the long haul with this community sometimes to heal wounds that have never been touched or acknowledged.
“It’s incredible to say we feed thousands but that’s just meeting basic human rights. If we get too excited about that it lets people off the hook. The empowerment happens in the relationship and the unpredictable situations that arise and we show up.” TJ Fletcher, Executive Director
