A community of 20 micro homes that will provide bridge housing for homeless people is planned on the campus of Glencliff United Methodist Church in south Nashville, write Getahn Ward and Holly Meyer, USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee.
Open Table Nashville, a nonprofit group that advocates for low-income, affordable housing, is leading the effort.
“Too many of our friends have died on the streets,” said Open Table Nashville Executive Director Rev. Ingrid McIntyre.
“Hopefully, this place will help by providing community and programs that will get the most vulnerable into permanent housing.”
A full-time care coordinator will be onsite at the Village at Glencliff working to provide residents with mental and physical health care and to help them with eventually securing permanent housing. To learn more about this project or to become a home sponsor, visit www.tennessean.com.
