Friends and graduate students

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.
