Dignity and Love

by brigid on January 10, 2016

In addition to sharing stories about motherhood, each Listen To Your Mother city donates 10% of all ticket sales to a local charity. For Nashville’s third annual show, we are thrilled to be working with Safe Haven Family Shelter.


Safe Haven is the only shelter-to-housing program of its kind in Middle Tennessee that accepts the entire homeless family. Safe Haven is driven by the belief that parents and children must be kept together in order to ensure security, success, and self-sufficiency.

Safe Haven helps families experiencing homelessness by providing for their immediate needs of shelter and stability, financial literacy, job training and placement, and intensive case management, all while treating them with dignity and love.

Community partnerships, education, volunteerism and donations all play a vital role in their success. We hope you will join us in supporting this fabulous organization. If you are interested in volunteering, you can find more information here.
