Description
The NazRec Youth Basketball League began in 2012 with 180 children, and has grown to over 700 children participating in the coming 2018 season. NazRec offers a competitive, safe, fun basketball league for families to enjoy. Over the 8-week season, more than 3,000 people attend NazRec games at Nashville First Church of the Nazarene (NFCN) or the Bethel Campus, introducing them to 510 Foundation and all the services it provides. The league serves both boys and girls ages 4 to 13, many of whom live in low income housing near NFCN. NazRec's earned revenue comes from the fees of 2/3 of league players, whose families are able to pay the $95 per child registration fee; the other third of league players receive full or partial scholarships so that no child is turned away from playing.

Description
Since 2014, Cheryls List has been turning empty rooms into homes for people transitioning from homelessness by providing new beds and donated furniture and household items. The program was inspired by the life and work of Cheryl Hales, a social worker who helped meet the needs of struggling families until she died of cancer. Cheryls List is an exclusively volunteer-run program based on the belief that everyone deserves a clean, comfortable, and safe place to live; a network of support; and hope for a better future. Cheryl's List receives client referrals from 19 social service agencies across Nashville and has served more than 330 people in 2017 alone. With only a 5-member moving team averaging 3 deliveries per week, a 13-member advisory board, and an army of donors, CL has provided the opportunity to transform housing into homes for hundreds of families. Yet despite these efforts, CL is only able to meet approximately one third of the requests for help.

Through athletics, arts education, counseling, classes, and fellowship, East Nashville Life exists to serve the residents of East Nashville, assisting them in facing and overcoming adversity by treating the whole person. The Emmaus Fellowship, a service of East Nashville Life, is a Sunday afternoon/evening gathering that is primarily attended by our homeless community and those living in low-income/ government housing. From 3pm-6 every Sunday, attendees share a meal, have a chance to shower, and spend the rest of the time resting, listening to music, accessing resources, and engaging in fellowship. Emmaus also offers specific programming for children and youth, Emmaus Kids, through a partnership with sister 510 Foundation program Adonai Arts Academy.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Emmaus Fellowship is the largest component of the East Nashville Life initiative (ENL), which also includes several smaller services such as Life Christian Counseling and the annual Partner School Community Event. Life Christian Counseling serves the therapy needs of over 65 community members unable to pay for full-priced counseling services elsewhere; this program subsidizes each session up to $50/hr. directly to the counselor, and provides more than 300 one-hour sessions annually. Partner School Community Events are special outreach events to five East Nashville public elementary schools that provide engaging, safe, and fun programming for children, such as professional BMX and skateboarding performances. Additional ad hoc services are also provided under the ENL banner as needed and requested by the surrounding community; in the past, these have included English Language Learning and Adult Education classes.
