What is the "Healing House"?
The "Healing House" is a place where you can feed the soul as well as the body. This innovative Not for profit organization is the brainchild of Andrelia D. Gooch. She is an amazing woman who will goes out of her way to help others whenever possible. Gooch is also the Founder/CEO of the Nashville, TN based, quality Catering & Special Event Company; "Andrelia's Personal Touch Catering" (APTC). Not just any "Bacon & Eggs, or Hamburger & Fries joint", but an entity where tantalizing, sumptuous food and often, memorable events are hand crafted with love and experience.
The "Healing House" will host their first official fundraiser at Gabby's Burgers and Fries, located at 493 Humpreys St. Nashville, TN aka: "Music City USA" From 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm guest will experience some of the most pallet pleasing foods & beverages- "APTC Style" and tap their toes to the sensational music of "DJ Natural."
Andrelia's passion and ideas have connected on another level, hence the launching of "Healing House" and the Saturday June 28, 2014 Kick off fundraiser. "Music City USA" is an exciting place to see or be indeed. Now add the "Healing House" Fun-raiser, a myriad of good food, great people and of course, some music, and memories of a lifetime are on the way!
And it does not stop there by any means, because Andrelia graciously shares her heart, spirit and well documented life experiences in the making and ongoing development of the "Healing House" it's more than fair to allow a "behind the scenes peek" with our readers.
Again, "Healing House" is a not for profit, recovery oriented organization set to be a haven in many ways for recovering addicts. "I would like to provide food quality food as well as a place for the recovering addict to go and feel safe and be able to obtain information on whatever they may need. Whether it's information on how to prepare and search for a job or any disease information they may need. I want it to be a place where all people may hold their events at. E.g; "The Red Hat Ladies" could host a tea, Businessmen can have meetings there, various life events or just a general family meeting, are some acceptable examples in the vision (soon to be a reality) I would like to provide an atmosphere of spiritual healing, safety and for them to know that the "Healing House" is a quiet place to meditate. Yes, there will be a meditation room, doubling as a place to read a book on your lunch break", stated Lady Gooch.
At press time she also told us that she wants to be able to go to the table and ask How are you today and listen of there is a need to. I would like for sale of food to take care of the overhead, also I would like for it to be a place where recovering addicts can hang out on the weekends, play cards, fellowship and dance. Because we don't have a place like that here in Nashville, TN."
In the theme of keeping it moving with the "Healing House" Andrelia plans to incorporate a clothing closet for those in need of appropriate clothing for an interview, similar to other noted "job readiness" clothing closet programs across the nation ( Dress for Success and Jacket for Jobs, etc.) only each piece will be $1.00 each item. In sheer Andrelia style, her interest is also l to be able to help anyone in need.
Just when you thought the "Healing House" could get any better, the established brick & mortar establishment will have a prayer box by one side of he door and a vision board on the other side. Don't forget to "SAVE THE DATE"-Gabby's Burgers and Fries, located at 493 Humpreys St. Nashville, TN aka: "Music City USA" From 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm guest will experience some of the most pallet pleasing foods & beverages- "APTC Style" and tap their toes to the sensational music of "DJ Natural."
