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, a retired teacher, organized the Gleaners Society at First Presbyterian Church to work with the needy of North Nashville.  All Martha O'Bryan Center's programs work together (joining family, community, and schools) to foster education and employment opportunities for our city's most at-risk individuals. MOBC's goals for the upcoming year include: having the Promise Neighborhood collaboration to plan and to execute our needs assessment and explore filling in health and education "gaps" in service that may exist for the Stratford Cluster ; mapping out what "scaling up" to serve all youth in the cluster looks like ; to start the Brick Oven Bakery initiative, by the summer of 2011, to provide healthy foods, fresh bread, and soft-job skills for area residents ; to launch its charter school, East End Preparatory, by August 2011 and to replicate its Tied Together parenting initiative in the Edgehill Community and to continue to create out of school time investments throughout the Stratford and Maplewood clusters.
