Mending Hearts' New Resource Center
May 3, 2016 saw the opening of a brand new, state of the art resource and treatment center at Mending Hearts. The building is 3,333 sq. feet and houses administrative offices, a computer lab, classroom, counseling room, a medical clinic and a group room large enough for all 94 of the current residents to meet. Mending Hearts offers supportive, sustainable recovery services for homeless women and ex-offenders. Mending Hearts started as a small halfway house in North Nashville in 2004 funded by income from their cleaning service. It has evolved into a recovery campus extending four blocks on Albion Street in West Nashville. Mending Hearts’ continuum of care offers a Residential Treatment program, Intensive Outpatient Treatment Day and Night program, Transitional Living, a Moms with Kids program, and Partial and
Independent Living. This growth is largely due to the vision of two extraordinary women, Katrina Frierson and Charlotte Grant–founding directors Katrina Frierson is pictured above welcoming everyone to the open house.In the new John and Stephanie Ingram Resource Center, Mending Hearts will offer women life skills training courses, including computer training and job skills training and activity classes such as Yoga and art therapy.
