Imagine a community where everyone benefits from good health and wellbeing.
Imagine a community where people thrive, access to care is affordable and needed health services are within reach of everyone.
Imagine a community of individuals working together to bring compassion to every encounter, whether in the doctor’s office, at the pharmacy, or through social service agency programs.
These are the dreams that fuel our work.
Our Statement of Inclusiveness:
The mission of The Healing Trust is the sacred work of fostering healing and wholeness for vulnerable populations through strategic investing, philanthropy, and advocacy. Through our grant making programs, The Trust aims to increase access to quality, compassionate healthcare for vulnerable populations across Middle Tennessee. The Trust’s grant making policies reflect the belief that organizational performance is greatly enhanced when people with different backgrounds and perspectives are engaged in an organization’s activities and decision-making process. Thus, the Trust actively seeks to promote access, equity and inclusiveness, and to discourage discrimination based on race, creed, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other factors that deny the essential humanity of all people. This principle is a lens through which all of the work of the Trust is viewed.
We believe health needs and human services should be delivered with a balance of skill and great compassion for the person being served.
