Mission Statement

Rooftop’s mission is to Keep Nashville Housed: Building stability through a compassionate & collaborative rent/mortgage assistance program.

47% of all Americans state they don’t have $400 saved for a financial emergency. (rockefellerfoundation.org) Rooftop serves this population by interrupting the eviction cycle for Davidson County residents who have sustainable living situations but whose housing stability has been threatened because of an unexpected financial hardship. Once a person loses a home, the eviction goes on their credit record and the odds change dramatically against that person ever regaining stable and permanent housing. A chronically homeless person cost the tax payer an average of $35,578 per year whereas supportive housing cost an average of $12,800 (endhomelessness.org). In 2020 Rooftop joined the community in responding to the March 3rd tornado, COVID-19, and financial assistance needs. Rooftop stabilized 752 households with just over $1.1 million in assistance impacting over 1,500 Nashvillians.
