  • Stay Warm Shelter - The Stay Warm Shelter operates during the months of January and February.  People who are homeless are fed a hot meal and provided a place to sleep during the coldest months of the year.  Each Friday evening people who are homeless in the Gallatin area are transported to Unlimited Potential Community Life Center.  They can stay for the night and are transported back to their original location the next morning after being fed breakfast and being given another meal for the day.  

  • THDA Homebuyers Education Class - THDA Homebuyers Education classes are taught through Unlimited Potential.  This provides those seeking approval for an FHA mortgage the opportunity to complete a major step in the process.  The THDA class must be completed and a certificate given in order for an individual to apply for an FHA mortgage.
