Community Impact

With addiction from Opioids and Heroin reaching unprecedented rates in our county and especially in Tennessee, Mending Hearts strives to provide a safe, warm and nurturing environment where true healing can take place.  Mending Hearts is grateful for every volunteer, donor, advocate, group leader, in-kind donation of food, clothing and furniture, and the list goes on.

Because of the generous support we received, in 2016 we were able to accomplish the following:

  • 290 women received housing, programming and services from our A&D continuum of care recovery program
  • 160 women gained employment while actively working on their recovery
  • 93% of women remained employed for six months or longer
  • 87% of women completed our Residential Treatment program as compared to the national average of 39%
  • 73% of women  remained drug and alcohol free and stabilized with the right therapy and treatment
  • Our recidivism rate is 3% of clients returning to the criminal justice system
