The Allison Place house

What's there:

Operation Stand Down (OSD) is a community-based program that provides housing for homeless veterans. In a structured, secure and supportive environment, veterans participate in a 12-step-based, holistic recovery program to rebuild their lives in preparation for their return to independent living.

The Hamilton Street house

This project will focus on addressing the needs of two of OSD's facilities: a historic 1943 bungalow at 1814 Allison Place that houses four male veterans and a quaint 1926 cottage at 512 Hamilton Street that houses five female residents.

What's needed:

On January 1, new fire regulations in Nashville will render the sprinkler systems at the OSD facilities dangerously out of code. Skilled engineers are needed to:

  • Replace and upgrade the sprinkler system.
  • Upgrade the home with Energy Star appliances.
  • Add new vinyl floors.
  • Create an outdoor living space for residents.
