April Residents meeting

Residents want Information

Every person wants and needs information to make decisions for themselves. The same goes for people experiencing homelessness.

That’s why How’s Nashville is inviting people who received assistance through the campaign to participate in the monthly residents meetings and help us outline what kind of communication would be useful and in what format. We rely on their advice to improve our processes and overall approach.

We would like to thank How’s Nashville residents for their active participation and for helping us empower people on their journey to housing.


How’s Nashville fundraiser

Thank you so much to Paul Tyson and his team from Vision Hospitality Group Inc. for using the grand opening of Up, a rooftop lounge on the 8th floor of the Fairfield Inn & Suites (on Division Street in the Gulch) as a fundraiser for How’s Nashville.

We also thank Mayor Karl Dean to attend the event and help us create awareness for How’s Nashville. Watch a video of the event.

You can still support How’s Nashville by ordering the Chocolate Pot’s de Creme dessert at Up. All proceeds will go to the How’s Nashville fund at the Metropolitan Homelessness Commission covering move-in costs for people who transition from homelessness into their new home.

Please join us at UP, a rooftop lounge, at 901 Division Street in the Gulch tomorrow from 5-7 p.m.

It’s a restaurant grand opening that serves as a How’s Nashville fundraiser. Mayor Karl Dean is planning to join Will Connelly, the director of the Metropolitan Homelessness Commission. Our host, the person who organized the fundraiser to go with the grand opening is Paul Tyson, regional director of operations for Vision Hospitality Group, Inc.

Paul Tyson and Vision Hospitality Group also sponsor our monthly residents meetings. They will dedicate the proceeds from one of the desserts at UP to benefit How’s Nashville for the rest of the year. We’ll announce after tomorrow what dessert you should eat there.
