Families in Sumner County that are struggling financially, as well as individuals with special needs, have a new place to get assistance.
Earlier this month, Gallatin’s NorthField Church celebrated the grand opening of its newly renovated Sumner Center. It is located on the church’s campus at 2100 Nashville Pike in Gallatin.
Sumner Center aims to assist families working through challenging life situations, yet striving for long-term stability by encouraging, educating and empowering people through one-on-one mentoring, community programs and support services.
The Sumner Center will offer community dental clinic days, a food pantry and space for one-on-one assistance with job skills, family budgeting and legal advice along with programming specifically designed for families of those with special needs.
All ministries and services offered at the facility will be free and available for anyone to use.
The next food box giveaway day planned for this month falls on Saturday, Nov. 20 and will be held on the corner of West Eastland and Dorothy Jordan Avenue in Gallatin.
The center is also scheduled to host its first free dental day on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. Organizers anticipate as many as 250 people will been seen by a group of local dentists who will be performing cleanings and extractions during the event.
