The Family Center received a grant from The Baptist Healing Trust, which awarded funds totaling over $1.07 Million in its most recent grant cycle. “We are proud to help support 27 local non-profits working to create access to quality, compassionate health services for the community’s most vulnerable residents,” said President & CEO Dr. Cathy Self. The mission of the Baptist 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.         

The Family Center's grant was for $45,000 and will be used for general operational needs.

Recipients of the contributions include non-profit organizations from 40 counties in Middle Tennessee that focus on 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 Baptist Healing Trust to over $69 million since 2002. The Trust, while created out of the sale of Baptist Hospital to Ascension Health/St. Thomas Health Services, is a private, independent foundation and is not affiliated with the St. Thomas Health Services or the St. Thomas Health Services Fund.
