 On a foundation of Christian faith, the Martha O'Bryan Center empowers children, youth, and adults in poverty to transform their lives through work, education, employment, and fellowship. Martha O'Bryan Center (MOBC) was founded in 1894, when Miss O'Bryan organized the Gleaners Society at First Presbyterian Church to work with the needy of North Nashville. Martha O'Bryan Center programs work together (joining family, community, and schools) to provider education, employment, health, and practical support across a cradle to college to career continuum of programs.  The agency's outcomes for the year include stabilizing health and resources, moving clients toward long-term personal and community objectives.  Its short-term measurable outcomes focus on increased literacy/math for youth, nutrition/physical fitness for youth, increased academic performance & ACT completion for high school students, graduation (99% of participants in 2012-13), college acceptance and retention (82 graduates in college).
