Three days of heavy rain starting on May 1, 2010 dropped as much as 20 inches of water on Tennessee, causing severe flooding in the western half of the state from Nashville to Memphis and completely submerging many homes.

Brethren Disaster Ministries has set up a repair and rebuilding project based in Ashland City, located outside Nashville in Cheatham County. In this area, 578 households are in need of assistance, including 41 homes destroyed and 76 in need of major repair.

The volunteer house is known as “Grand View Lodge” and is located at 1158 Ranch Road, Ashland City, TN 37015. BDM will accept groups of up to 15 weekly volunteers. The house has about 6 bedrooms, with the men’s quarters in the lower level and women’s quarters on the first floor. Volunteers should be advised that they may need to go up and down steps. Volunteers may be asked to sleep on a top bunk, but many volunteers will have an entire bunk set to themselves depending upon group size and makeup. Volunteers should plan to bring their own bedding, towels, and toiletries, etc.

See photos of volunteer house.

Meals are prepared in a fully equipped kitchen and shared in the dining area. There is ample room for fellowship and meals. Please note that volunteer groups are asked to include an assistant cook.

BDM volunteers will be doing repair work and some possible new construction. Major repair work includes insulation, drywall, laminate flooring, painting, trim work, siding, etc.
Travel to project site

Volunteers who opt to fly will need to arrange their own transportation from the airport to the project site and back. The Nashville airport is 42 miles from the volunteer house in Ashland City.
