Project Love Strong was founded in July 2018. Since that time PLS has hosted 8 street outreaches; Hoodies for the homeless 2018, 2019, 2020, Tees & Teas 2019, 2020, and a 2 day North Nashville, TN Tornado relief, 2020. When PLS is not hosting Street Outreaches, they are working with partnering organizations to help provide support to the underprivileged communities and encampments.
PLS has served over 2,100 individuals in Nashville, TN, 80 individuals in Denver, CO, and over 100 individuals across LA. PLS has also provided care essentials to our neighboring states: GA, AL, VA, and KY. Our goal is to spread awareness, provide basic essentials, connect individuals to resources, and show love from state to state to those in NEED!
PLS has had the pleasure of partnering with organizations to help provide hands-on street services such as Community Resource Center, NAACP, Kroger's, Metro Police Department, Rutherford Health Department, First Baptist Church, Capitol Hill, Bearded Villains, providing haircuts, Shower Up, providing showers, Shade Tree Clinic, providing flu vaccines, Operation Stand Down, providing veteran services, Project ID, providing ID services, and more.
