About Us

Be a Helping Hand (BHH) was established in 2001. Our original mission was to provide construction and job readiness training to young adults from the inner city at no cost. BHH was an intermediary that directed individuals and families in need of skills training to partner with nonprofits who offered job-readiness assistance. BHH worked with various agencies and charities to match individuals with the appropriate skills training.

BHH is a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), and our continuing mission is building affordable housing. We develop affordable housing for large families in North Nashville and the surrounding areas by using funding from state and local agencies.
