The Challenge

The Need for Property renovations

Since 2004, we’ve been serving men on Foster Avenue on a portion of the TPS campus leased from the State of Tennessee. We currently have six buildings which allows us to provide housing for up to 60 men seeking a fresh start in their lives. These buildings were built in 1955 and are in need of significant updates and repair.

The Solution

Renovation Projects

Throughout 2023 and 2024, 4:13 Strong will:

  • Replace ventilation and ceilings in all bathrooms
  • Replace roofs, gutters, and downspouts
  • Add new exterior soffits on all buildings
  • Upgrade kitchens in 3 buildings
  • Pave parking lot and curbs
  • Replace windows and doors
  • Paint and add landscaping

How You Can get involved

We know from experience that providing solid training, housing, transportation, and a network of support leads men to become stronger, helps them reconnect with their families, and leads to a stronger Nashville. Here are a few ways you can help us continue to build men of character.
