Our Story

Our mission statement: We are a ministry center committed to PROTECT and EMPOWER those in our community living in distress.

What would it look like if we immersed ourselves in a community to help meet tangible needs?

The West Nashville Dream Center is a ministry 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.

When we began serving our community for one hour a week in the Spring of 2013 we knew there was a need for hope in a neighborhood plagued with drugs, poverty, and oppression.

While most of us are lucky enough to have support as we steer through life, 168 hours of life feels a lot longer for some of our neighbors. We have realized in order to transform people’s hearts, lives, and their neighborhood, we have to be present during those 168 hours. It is that sustained, consistent presence that drives lasting change.

Our purpose is carried out by passionate partners who give of their time volunteering and/or their resources through funding. While the West Nashville Dream Center has seen incredible growth over the last five years, there is a clear vision to continue expanding programs and meeting needs in the years to come.

There is a place for you at the West Nashville Dream Center and we invite you to be part of our fight for Dreams Inspired and Hope Renewed.
