After the Civil War, Nashvillians with a passion for caring were inspired to create the Old Woman’s Home, the forerunner of today’s West End Home Foundation. That generosity and insight set a standard by which we strive to continue to operate. The original mission of providing direct care for senior women lasted for over 120 years. As times changed, the Board members were faced with tough decisions regarding the future of the home, but always in the forefront was the loving care of the remaining residents. With this book, we look back at our history and remain grateful for those that had the foresight and commitment to service that led us to where we are today.
–From the Foreword by Kim Sumner Hardin, President of the West End Home Foundation Board of Directors
