Nashville nonprofit Safe Haven Family Shelter is gearing up for its 8th Annual Hike for the Homeless Event. The Hike for the Homeless event benefits the shelter and its mission in the greater Nashville area.
Safe Haven’s mission with its shelter-to-housing program is to empower homeless families with children to
achieve lasting self-sufficiency. The shelter is unique in that it is the only of its kind in Nashville to serve homeless family units as a whole, choosing not to separate families by gender or age.
This year’s Hike is happening on Nov. 3 at Edwin Warner Park. There are 2 paved trails of a little over 2 and 3 miles each in length. The event is dog and child friendly, so it is a great time to get the entire family together to give back to the community! A free lunch, climbing wall, inflatables, children’s activities, live salsa band and more will be part of this event, so be sure to add it to your calendars and get involved for a fun day supporting Safe Haven here in Nashville.
The Hike will take place at shelters 9 and 11. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and hikers will be hitting the trails at 10 a.m. Participants are encouraged to create teams, with a fundraising goal of $1,000 per team. Everyone who donates $25 or more will receive one Hike for the Homeless t-shirt.
