Well, we had hoped to move folks into the center this past Monday, but identifying and making arrangements to move folks in took a bit longer than we had hoped. However, we learned today that our first guest will be arriving tomorrow and that we should receive 3 more guests on Monday. Please pray for their safe arrival and that they transition quickly into the program here at City Road Chapel.
One of the things we’ve been working on is getting our fire alarm system updated on the third floor. Our vendor ran into some issues so that is still pending, but we have made provisions for fire safety on the third floor.
Our navigation staff has been hard at work in preparing for the arrival of our guests. We have partnered with Christian Cooperative Ministries in providing food for our guests. We will also be working with The Nashville Food Project, Centerstone, and others in ensuring that those involved in the program get the resources they need as they move toward a more stable housing situation.
It’s taken months to get this up and running, but by next week we should start seeing some fruit from our labors.
