Noah's Ark Society

Noah’s Ark Society


Our mission is to rescue, educate, rehabilitate and love all animals that come to us in need here in Middle Tennessee. We will also be a voice in animal cruelty legislation. Noah’s Ark Society will speak for the voiceless…the cast-offs of human society. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization solely funded from individual donations.

Currently Noah’s Ark Society is raising capital funds and acquiring 500 acreage for the sanctuary. If you would like to be a part of this movement or need more information, please contact us at

  • Our sanctuary will be a no-kill facility that serves the needs of domestic animals, equines, livestock, farm animals, and wildlife in the Tennessee area.
  • As a rescue, our responsibilities are to make sure all animals are spayed and neutered, receive complete vaccinations, are given monthly preventatives, and cared for until a responsible home is found.
  • Wildlife animals will be rehabilitated until they can safely be returned to their natural habitat.
  • We aim to build strong relationships with other local animal rescue organizations, raising funds for individuals in our community who dedicate their lives, energy and money to rescuing pets in need but may not be able to campaign for themselves.

Offering hope to the next generation through Christ’s love.

To be the place of peace, purpose and possibilities for youth.

Founded in 1994 by Contemporary Christian Music Artist Michael W. Smith, Rocketown is a faith based youth outreach facility in the heart of Downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Our approach to working with youth is holistic, with programs and services nurturing the mind, body, and spirit. We engage youth through attraction-based facilities and programs, like our Sixth Avenue Skatepark, live music and concert venues, Coffee & Snack Bar, and afterschool academic enrichment and creative arts programs. Once youth are engaged and have become part of the Rocketown community, staff introduce them to more Ministry-centered programs like our weekly Skate Church and Family Dinner gatherings.


Community Options

Community Options


Our mission is to provide residential and employment supports to people with disabilities.

Community Options’ mission is to develop housing and employment supports for persons with disabilities.

Community Options believes in the dignity of every person, and in the freedom of all people to experience the highest degree of self-determination. Embracing this philosophy, Community Options works with individuals with significant disabilities through residential services, day programs, social enterprises that employ individuals with disabilities, high school transition programs, and specialized programs for respite and medically fragile adults. As a national agency, Community Options seeks to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community through person centered and natural supports, and collaboration with community partners to increase accessibility to services. Community Options does not administer any large congregate programs, recognizing that people with the most severe disabilities need environments, equipment, clinical and staff support that are tailored to their very specific needs. In its history, the agency has developed a reputation for quality, cost effective administration that encourages individual choice and flexibility.

Thank you for your support.

Metro Nashville Police Department Christmas Basket Program


Metro Nashville PD Christmas Bask

The Metro Police Christmas Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that has been serving Davidson County for over half a century. Because the program has grown each year to meet the needs of the ever expanding community, funding is always a matter of concern.

Several benefit motorcycle rides have been held annually which have been instrumental in raising funds and toys. Several other organizations have also provided financial assistance as well as toys. Contributions are also made by police employees, private citizens, small businesses and other charitable organizations.

Families are selected based on recommendations from police officers. Metro Police officers encounter numerous disadvantaged families on a daily basis. Unfortunately we cannot provide for them all therefore we give careful consideration when choosing the neediest families. Thrifty buying allows for large quantities of basic foods to be purchased. Each family receives 4 bushel baskets of groceries. The baskets of food and toys are assembled in a warehouse the week prior to Christmas. Christmas Eve morning employees of the department arrive to participate. By 9am all of the baskets have been delivered and the warehouse is quiet for another year. A great satisfaction is felt by those participating in being able to make the holidays more enjoyable for those less fortunate.
