T.W. Frierson and DCi’s long-standing partnership with the Nashville Rescue Mission culminated in two prestigious awards at the ULI Nashville 14th Annual Excellence in Development Awards ceremony on May 15, 2024. The event, attended by over 600 industry leaders, celebrated projects making transformative impacts on Middle Tennessee.

The Nashville Women’s Rescue Mission project, a testament to this enduring partnership, won in the non-profit under $20 million category and received the Rose Faeges-Easton Community Impact Award. The project, which began in 2019, addressed the rising number of homeless women and children, providing a new 71,880 square foot facility with 348 beds, expanded kitchen and cafeteria facilities, a chapel, family units, larger classrooms, offices, meeting spaces, and enhanced security measures.

Despite challenges such as consolidating 14 separate parcels into a single property, the project was successfully completed in October, symbolizing compassion, community, and the transformative power of hope and dignity for those in need. T.W. Frierson and DCi’s commitment to excellence and community service shines through in this project, reflecting their dedication to making a positive impact in Middle Tennessee.

“We are incredibly honored to receive these awards, which are a testament to our team’s dedication to excellence and our commitment to making a positive impact in the communities we serve,” said Kit Ozburn, President of T.W. Frierson. “The Nashville Women’s Rescue Mission project was a labor of love for us, and we are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such a meaningful cause and to live out our core mission of creating a foundation for people to thrive.”

The Nashville Women’s Rescue Mission project not only marked a significant achievement for T.W. Frierson but also signaled the end of an era as the company bid farewell to its most tenured employee-owner, Tommy Manley. After an incredible 47-year career as a Superintendent with T.W. Frierson, Tommy chose the award-winning Women’s Rescue Mission project as the perfect finale to his remarkable journey with the company.
