Against the Grain Outreach
Advisor: Professor Charles Bowie
Our Mayfield House Project will focus on the study of the epidemic of single parenthood in the United States by working with and serving single parent families in Nashville. Specifically, we will be working with “Against the Grain,” a non profit organization based in Nashville that seeks to serve disadvantaged children and single mothers by “empowering them to become self supporting, knowledgeable, involved members of society”. We hope that throughout the year we will not only form strong relationships with those who we are seeking to aid and serve, but also gain a greater understanding and empathy for what these families must face everyday.
