Homeplace has had an impact on far more than the residents it was formed to serve. A nonprofit residence minutes from downtown Nashville, Homeplace, Inc. was formed in 1988 and represents a partnership between Belmont University, Belmont United Methodist Church, and a group of committed volunteers. 

At the time of it’s inception, the congregation at Belmont United Methodist had recognized the larger community’s need for integrated housing for individuals with intellectual disabilities and charged the church with investing in a new model to do so.
