About us, our clients, our friends.

Our Place Nashville partners with non-profit organizations to provide brick-and-mortar housing called Friendship Houses throughout the city for adults with developmental disabilities.

Divinity Friendship House at Vanderbilt

Located near the Vanderbilt campus in Nashville, TN.


Our Place Nashville creates an interdependent living environment comprised of residents with IDD and student volunteer residents from Vanderbilt University Divinity School and other graduate student programs.


Friends and graduate student

For every Friend who resides at a Friendship House, there are two graduate students, most from Vanderbilt University Divinity School.


Our Place Nashville helps our Friendship House residents find employment and volunteer opportunities that give them a sense of accomplishment, independence and community.
