God’s Love First is powered by volunteers both in prison and in the Nashville area community. All cash and in-kind donations go directly to programs and practical support for successful re-entry.


Our efforts focus on reforming hearts and minds, breaking down generational strongholds, and healing broken lives.


As little as $150 will pay half-way house rent for a newly released person. We give thoughtful cash assistance to help them succeed.

You can make a difference

With your help, we can expand our reach and reverse the damaging recidivism rate across Tennessee. We need passionate people devoted to prison ministry, and we need in-kind and cash donations for programming and successful re-entry. A little goes a very long way.
