East Nashville, with nationally recognized small businesses and restaurants, is a beacon of creativity, diversity, and acceptance; but ours is also a neighborhood where over 60% of high school students read on a sixth grade level or below, 9 of 10 children do not attend college, unemployment is 15% above the Davidson County average, and the drop out rate is 23% above the county average.
Since 1894, the Martha O'Bryan Center has provided resources to individuals and families, empowering them to achieve independence and success. We believe that communities are healthiest when parents are working and children are succeeding in schools.
Thanks to our supporters, volunteers, partners and the families we serve, we are together changing the expectations of achievement and engagement for all in East Nashville. We are breaking the line.
