The Present Reality

In Nashville's low-income neighborhoods, violence is an everyday fact of life. Gangs recruit the young, stealing their childhood and, often, their life—creating a public health issue for all Nashvillians. Homicide is today the No. 1 cause of death among African-American boys ages 10-24.

Nashville Peacemakers is working to raise children on truth, giving them a vision for their future before they are lost forever.

Three programs form the pillars of Nashville Peacemakers—two giving youth in distressed neighborhoods basic life skills and self-worth to choose peaceful alternatives to violence, and another to support mothers whose child has been victimized

A message from Clemmie

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the lord, and he will repay him for his deed.” 

Proverbs 19:17
