CFMT’s Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund is helping people rebuild and restore lives.
In the early morning of March 3, 2020, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee activated the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund in response to the devastating tornadoes that ripped through several of Nashville’s most iconic neighborhoods.
The generosity of our neighbors, near and far, showcased the love and compassion residents and visitors alike have for our great community.
Immediately following the tornado, Nashville got to work on meeting the needs of those impacted by the deadly storms. Through the collaborative effort of nonprofits, city officials, neighborhood groups and faith-based organizations, the work towards pre-tornado wholeness continues daily. The road to recovery is long, and the journey is different for each tornado survivor.
Gifts to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund have helped area organizations provide counseling and mental health support; direct financial assistance; insurance mediation; food and nutrition; home furnishings; home repairs and rebuilds; household goods and clothing; insurance mediation; legal assistance; mortgage, rent, and utility payments; temporary and permanent housing; and primary healthcare services.
Survivors in need of help are encouraged to call the Tornado Recovery Connection helpline at 615-270-9255. Resources are still available.FOLLOW CFMT TORNADO RESPONSE HERE
