affordable housing

Housing is obtained at a cost that matches the individual’s income or anticipated income through a group of housing partners that includes Urban Housing Solutions, Prestige Pointe, First Nashville Realty Management and others. BLF will pay up to the first two months rent, utilities and deposits depending on the assessed need of the individual. The individual will typically have a job within the first 30 days in the program which allows them to pay their own rent thereafter.

apartment furnishings

Each participant is provided an apartment package free of charge that includes towels, bedding, cleaning supplies, dishes, pots/pans, silverware, coffee pot, pillows, etc. Complete furniture for the apartment is also furnished as furniture is available.

job assistance

Building Lives provides job placement assistance utilizing a network of employment service companies and individual corporations who have agreed to partner with Building Lives to provide employment opportunities. This information is provided by the BLF Resource Coordinators. Additional employment opportunities are communicated as they become available through the BLF network.

guidance counseling

A Resource Coordinator (Mentor) is provided to each individual. Their role is to assist the individual to successfully attain the individual’s new life goals. The Mentor will provide life skills training, budgeting assistance, serve as a sounding board/listen and provide options and solutions as needed. The Mentor also encourages the individual to join a church, mosque or synagogue of their choice, get involved with community service and provides avenues to grow the individual’s community (new associates, friends and contacts).
