Doors of Hope recently received a grant from The Healing Trust, which awarded funds totaling more than $800,000 in its most recent grant cycle.
The Doors of Hope CARE Program grant was for $40,000 and will be used for counseling and recovery programs for dually diagnosed clients.
"We are deeply grateful for the life changing work done by these 19 grantee partners," said President & CEO Kristen Keely-Dinger. "Their commitment to improving the health of the most vulnerable members of our community is inspiring."
Since 2011, Doors of Hope has been operating as a comprehensive long-term rehabilitative reentry program for women being released from incarceration or substance abuse treatment.
The mission of The Healing Trust, a private grant making foundation, is the sacred work of fostering healing and wholeness for vulnerable populations through strategic investing, philanthropy, and advocacy.
Recipients of the contributions include non-profit organizations from 40 counties in Middle Tennessee that focus on advocacy, physical health, mental health, recovery from alcohol and drug abuse or healing from abuse, neglect, and violence.
This year’s grants bring the collective grant making of The Healing Trust to almost $90 million since 2002. The Trust, while created out of the sale of Baptist Hospital to Ascension Health/Saint Thomas Health Services, is a private, independent foundation and is not affiliated with the Saint Thomas Health Services or the Saint Thomas Health Services Fund.
