Grant from The Healing Trust

Safe Haven Family Shelter received a grant from The Healing Trust, which awarded funds totaling  $1.4 million in its most recent grant cycle. Safe Haven’s grant was for $53,000 and will be utilized to provide compassionate, trauma informed services to families experiencing homelessness through the Shelter and Housing programs.

“Safe Haven is grateful for this award which will help us provide care and services for our clients,” said Joyce Lavery, CEO of Safe Haven Family Shelter. “With the support of the Healing Trust, we will continue to meet the needs of our community to transform the lives of families experiencing homelessness.”

“We are deeply grateful for the life changing work done by these 23 grantee partners, “said President & CEO Kristen Keely-Dinger. “Their commitment to improving the health of the most vulnerable members of our community is inspiring.” 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 over $94 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.
