CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments


We receive a variety of support from the Greater Nashville Community, which has been steadfast since our inception. Congregational support for our prison outreach work continues to be strong, evidenced by ecumenical support of six key churches, and we received an $8,000 program commitment from TN Dept. of Corrections again this fiscal year. Our support from Individuals has grown this past year, with help from The Big Payback campaign, year-end appeals, and gifts from our volunteers including a large private gift of $7,500 and 100% Board Giving of more than $10,000 from 8 women. We plan to grow our budget to support revision and modernization of our proprietary curriculum and training, increase programmatic evaluation, and create new sources of support for capacity-building that will allow us to chart a future to reach more women in a variety of settings with our educational offerings and mentoring support.
