The STAND Project

More Information

The STAND Project

Nashville's theatre community "STANDS" against homelessness and addiction!

Some of Nashville's favorite theatre organizations will be presenting STAND at venues around Nashville to help raise awareness not only about the plight of the homeless but also about those who have found their way to the street through addiction. A portion of the proceeds from each presentation of STAND will be donated to the JJ Ellis foundation at 'Room In The Inn'. These funds will be used to help others who are broken, like JJ, through no fault of their own.
