The West End Home Foundation provided special funding in response to the devastating tornadoes that struck Davidson County and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:
NeedLink Nashville was awarded an emergency grant to ensure that older adults impacted by the tornadoes had access to emergency rent and utility assistance. These emergency funds were expended in 2020.
MDHA Housing Trust Corporation was awarded a grant to hire a full-time Resource Navigator dedicated specifically to support the 1900 older adults living in MDHA housing units. The Resource Navigator will mobilize resources needed by the older residents and facilitate the logistics of service delivery. This project was funded for a one-year period, beginning in October 2020.
