Learning Pods & Resource Hubs Our Learning Pods and Resource Hubs will become a resource for our families to have access to educational support through homework assistance and tutoring. Also since 1 in 4 children in our community face hunger on a daily basis, our resource hubs provide support for families through food boxes, snacks, and financial assistance to help fight food insecurity. Camp Paradise Valley Weekly Camp Paradise Valley Weekly, our “camp in a box,” can be used in both urban and rural areas to provide the camp experience at home. Each week our campers receive a box full of educational activities, devotional materials, and food resources to allow them to experience camp at home! In conjunction with the boxes, there are weekly videos for campers to tune in and follow along as our camp leaders walk them through the activities, sing songs, and play games to further interact with our campers. Camp Paradise Valley - Sleep Away Camp on Dale Hollow Lake Camp Paradise Valley provides an opportunity for our campers, ages 7 to 17, to get outside of the city breathe some fresh air, and embark on a trail to self-discovery. Throughout their stay, campers get to enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. Campers have the ability to experience sports, small-scale farming, wildlife, rock wall climbing, music, art, and archery. Of course, Dale Hollow Lake provides a multitude of opportunities for our campers to get up close and personal with nature! Boating, fishing, and hiking are all on the agenda for our campers. Campers also have an option to become “seekers” who have decided to change their life through a personal relationship with God. Emergency Disaster Services Provides mass feeding, personal care items, counseling and social services referrals for survivors of disaster. Trained volunteer disaster teams led by Salvation Army staff are available to serve locally and nationwide. Nashville Salvation Army disaster teams have served our community most recently during the March 3rd Tornado that devistated parts of North Nashville, East Nashville and Donelson/Hermitage. Prior to that we served during the flooding in 2013 and 2010 and Tornado Outbreaks in 2013 and 2008. On a National level, our teams have served at the World Trade Center, during Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Michael. Worship Centers Spread throughout Nashville, we have three Corps (churches) locations that bring our social services, counseling, spiritual and emotional support directly into the neighborhoods that need them the most. Depending on the location, we offer youth empowerment services, food and financial assistance, and more.
