Who we serve
Everyone at some point needs a hand up through a transitional time. We serve resilient people such as refugees, students, and aspiring entrepreneurs who lack resources but are ready to take a step towards brighter futures.
How we serve
We offer educational programs for homework help, English classes, and small business coaching to families including refugees and under resourced individuals. We also offer fresh healthy food- a tool to empower strong minds and bodies.
Our Vales and Foundations
We use a wholistic approach with 4 core Values and Foundations: Family and Community, Education, Financial Stability and Hope and Healing. Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.”
The Aloe Family exists because of generous people interested in empowering resilient people towards positive life change. Serve with us, give with us, and join The Aloe Family.
Building Community and Creating Family
When refugees flee their countries, they have often overcome immense challenges and trails. The people we serve are brave, strong, and eager for brighter futures.
The Aloe Family gives a hand- up. Just like a family steps in to set a child on a path for success, we also provide resources to launch individuals into pursuing their dreams for education and financial stability.
Through a trauma informed approach and a basis in faith, we know how important healing is. We offer a community of support to allow those we serve to see their futures and their present through a lens of hope.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for education, well-being, self-sufficiency and healing to resilient communities and individuals facing challenges of poverty and lack of family support
Our communities in Nashville consist of mainly refugees and people far from their families. Do due the struggles they face, fresh groceries and healthy foods are often last on the priority list. Partnering with the West Nashville Dream Center, The Aloe Family makes sure that the need of healthy food to power strong minds is met.
The Aloe Family meets that need by providing weekly educational support for children and parents. We offer homework help, English lessons, and educational opportunities for life skills here in the USA.
Leadership & Professional Development
We are equipping future leaders to change cycles of poverty in their environments through business skills including marketing, budgeting, English, making artisan crafts and more.
Why the name The Aloe Family?
Aloe vera is a plant that is rough on the outside, making it tough enough to grow in the harshest conditions in the desert. Just a small amount of water is enough resource for it to grow. When you break the aloe vera plant open, healing properties drip out of the inside.
The Aloe Family seeks to provide a hand-up to the resilient. The communities we work with consist of individuals who are tough, who grow with the resources they have, and who are healing on the inside from the challenges they have faced.
We operate as a family, carrying each others burdens, and pushing one another to be the best version of themselves.

Values & Foundations
Family + Community
We all need family and communities where we feel safe and supported. We believe that we all need a hand-up at times in order to be our best selves. The Aloe Family acts as that support.
Always learning. Always Growing. The Aloe Family provides educational opportunities and support to refugees, and to those in need of financial support for furthering their education.
We help future leaders find solutions for financial independence, despite challenges that come with poverty. Through business loans, and creative job opportunities, we empower creative and resilient entrepreners.
Hope and Healing
Through hope in faith, friendship, trauma informed care, and aid in counseling resources, we believe that resilient people can heal, and help heal others as well.
