SHELDON DIGGS

Founder, Souls United

After experiencing homelessness himself, US Army Veteran, Sheldon Diggs founded Souls United in July 2017. Realizing that he could be just one paycheck away from being homeless again himself, Sheldon was inspired by a higher power to live a compassionate life - one committed to providing hope and inspiration to others struggling to survive on the streets. Today he runs a weekly free-lunch operation offering nourishment to Nashville’s homeless - both via a warm meal and old-fashioned tender loving care. Each week on Wednesdays starting at 8am Sheldon and his Souls United volunteers can be found cooking and preparing meals at Community Care Fellowship in East Nashville. Lunch service begins at 11:30am. For more information and to volunteer visit https://www.facebook.com/soulsunitednashville/.
