Making a house a home for the formerly homeless
How’s Nashville, the campaign started by the Homelessness Commission to find housing for the chronically homeless, has had a smashing success rate over the last year, putting more than 500 people into permanent housing. They’ve started holding residents’ meetings to encourage community and they asked CRC for some door prizes to encourage participation.
What a huge hit. We try to provide them with things that either enhance the home experience or just some everyday luxuries like a new purse accessorized with a scarf and some jewelry. Thanks to a major retailer that donates new decorative items and clothing, CRC World Headquarters has a lot of items that will make a house a home.
Sometimes the little things turn out to be the big things.
