Since the founding of our country, millions of men and women have left the safety and comfort of their homes to go to war to safeguard our democratic freedoms; millions more have given their lives. Some of those returning veterans, who survived the war, find themselves facing an even graver battlefield; our country’s veteran resources are overburdened and incapable of addressing veterans’ health and psychological needs.
Building Lives Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, was formed by a group of Middle Tennessee business leaders, who recognized the severity of Nashville’s homeless veterans’ situation. Regrettably, over twenty percent of Nashville’s homeless are honorably discharged veterans. Building Lives Foundation, Inc. is committed to assisting Nashville’s veterans by providing one-on-one mentoring, health and psychological care referrals, employment, transportation, housing and financial education. Our singular goal is to support and transition each veteran to become productive members of our community.
Please join us on September 8th at Sound Kitchen Studios for our 5th Annual Live-In Studio Concert with all funds raised benefiting Nashville’s veterans. Since our inception, we have served over 225 individuals, 16 families and 23 children.
Please call Dorothy Scobey at 615-972-6870 for sponsor information or visit www.wearebuildinglives.org to purchase tickets.
