Our mission is to help mitigate displacement and create affordable housing solutions for seniors on fixed incomes and provide supportive services that enhance their well-being while keeping them connected to community.




Our vision is to engage the community to reimagine aging by respecting the value and worth of seniors as they live out their full potential.



  • Promote equitable opportunities for affordable housing

  • Lessen the income-restricted barriers that low-income seniors must endure

  • Build connectedness of seniors to the community

  • Promote the building of safe and affordable communities for seniors

  • Bridge access to services and programs that enhance the total well-being of seniors

  • Create funding programs to incentivize affordable housing development


A.W.A.K.E. Nashville (Advocating for Wellness, Accessibility, and Knowledge of injustice facing the Elderly) is a non-profit organization that advocates for senior members of our community who have limited resources and cannot advocate for themselves. It is our goal to build a bridge of opportunity for the very people who thought they had been forgotten.

The organization was formed by Karen Holder and Danielle Cotton after spearheading the recent relocation efforts of the displaced seniors from the North Park Village Senior Community in Madison, TN. The mother-daughter duo saw a need and wanted to launch an organization to address the growing housing gap for senior residents of Nashville. 

The overarching purpose of AWAKE Nashville is to be the change agent in transforming the lives of seniors into a place of wholeness. We are dedicated to assessing each person’s individual needs in an effort to improve their ability to function as productive, contributing members of their community.
