Humphreys Street

Nashville, TN

Coffee, Soap

Humphreys Street, a social enterprise of Harvest Hands CDC, was born out of a desire to raise up leaders within our neighborhood by creating jobs, providing mentorship opportunities, and teaching job skills that empower youth such as customer service, marketing, and craftsmanship.

When a local teen applies for and receives a job at Humphreys Street, they are trained in a highly skilled craft and are given the opportunity to earn money in a neighborhood where few positive economic opportunities exist. Humphreys Street employees also have the opportunity to tour colleges, learn about trade school options, and spend time with mentors who share about their education, career, and other life experiences. Additionally, students are provided with financial literacy training, access to resources to open checking and savings accounts, and opportunities to earn academic scholarships upon graduation.
