Love at the Core

The Paisleys partnered with Brad’s alma mater, Belmont University, to establish the location for The Store (convenient to bus routes, and in the heart of Nashville’s bustling 12 South district). It is a location that provides the ultimate melting pot defined by vision, struggle, growth & heart.

The largest architectural firm in Nashville, ESa is donating their services to design The Store. The property being provided by Belmont will be next to the university’s ministry center. In 2018-19, Belmont University will be piloting the Healthcare and Legal Aid Ministry Clinics. These services will allow us to work closely with their clients to meet any food and nutritional needs.

Special Thanks to our Founder's Circle
