Nashville Rescue Mission to Renovate Chapel

The Boedecker Foundation provided significant grant to fund the project 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville Rescue Mission announced today it will renovate its chapel space thanks to a significant grant and advisory support from The Boedecker Foundation, an organization whose mission is to provide critical resources to nonprofit organizations that inspire positive change within diverse communities around the world.

“We feel very fortunate to have a partner in The Boedecker Foundation for a project like this. Having a safe, inviting gathering space for the people we serve is crucial to our ministry,” said Glenn Cranfield, Nashville Rescue Mission president. “Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry, homeless and hurting, and we look forward to sharing our renovated chapel with those we serve.”

The chapel renovation, expected to be complete by the end of May, will include new flooring, furniture, sound equipment, screens and high-definition projectors, lighting, acoustic paneling and paint. Improvements will also be made to the stage. Once completed, the chapel will hold up to 430 people seated theater-style or 162 people seated at round tables.

“I founded The Boedecker Foundation with the goal of setting an example of the power of compassion for others who are less fortunate. Nashville Rescue Mission is meeting a critical need in the community and is an example of a world-class organization that positively impacts so many by showing compassion to those in need,” said George B. Boedecker Jr., founder and chairman of The Boedecker Foundation.
