About Hope On the Row

OUR Mission

Connecting the music community with homelessness relief efforts throughout Nashville to make Music City a home for everyone.


Hope on the Row was founded in 2020 by Nashville-based songwriter Ava Suppelsa in an effort to support the homeless community in Nashville amidst the global pandemic. With a world turned upside down, her attention went to those that are typically first to be forgotten.

Taking to social media, Ava posted asking for donations from her network to buy backpacks and personal items to fill them with so she could hand them out over the weekend. The response was overwhelming.

Hundreds of dollars were raised in days and Hope on the Row was born.

Every weekend, a team of volunteers purchases, packages, and delivers important personal items and comforts to Nashville's homeless community on and around Music Row.

Music has power, on and off the stage. Music makers change lives. Hope on the Row hopes to be an example of what the heart and soul found in Nashville's creative community is all about.
