How we Serve

The Emergency Assistance program provides basic needs such as food, clothing and household and personal items for those in need. Second Harvest Food Bank partners with The Salvation Army by supplying the food for emergency food boxes. The program can also provide short-term assistance with rent and utility bills for those facing financial and other crises. Whether a family’s situation is due to sudden job loss, the financial impact of illness or loss of home due to fire or disaster, Emergency Assistance supplies the resources to help prevent homelessness and hunger and return families to stability.

Emergency Assistance serves those in need throughout the Metro Nashville community through its main office at 225 Berry Street and three Salvation Army Worship and Assistance Centers located at 3808 Park Avenue (Hispanic Center), 525 Paragon Mills Road (Laotian Center), and 425 Neely’s Bend Road (Citadel Center). The program is also a valuable source of information for those requiring other kinds of assistance and the Social Services Coordinator can initiate referrals for many crucial social services.
