Safe Haven Family Shelter

Looking for a volunteer opportunity to share next year with your family, a group of families or a group of friends?

There is only one shelter in Nashville for families who find themselves homeless and wish to remain together during their time of need for lodging, and that shelter is Safe Haven Family Shelter, located on 3rd Avenue South.

First Presbyterian Church has committed to serve Safe Haven with volunteers to provide dinner for 25 – 30 residents on the first Monday of every other month.

Each year our congregation fills these volunteer needs in the months of February, April, June, August, October and December.

Volunteers may prepare the meal in their own home or on-site at the shelter’s newly expanded kitchen.  Volunteers are also encouraged to eat with the residents and then head home after cleaning up.

We invite you come alongside these families for just one night. Individuals or groups are all welcome to serve.

For questions, to learn more and volunteer, or to be added to a Safe Haven “last minute” needs call list, call 615-298-9507 or email
