CCCAC receives Baptist Healing Trust Grant - August 2012
Coffee County Children's Advocacy Center received a grant from The Baptist Healing Trust, which recently awarded funds totaling almost $2 million to 50 local non-profits for a variety of health related projects, according to President & CEO Cathy Self. The Baptist Healing Trust fosters access to compassionate healthcare in Middle Tennessee through its grant making and programs.
The Children’s Advocacy Center grant was for $15,000 and will be used to provide trauma focused therapy for children who are victims of sexual abuse.
Recipients of the contributions include non-profit organizations from all over Middle Tennessee working to create access to quality, compassionate health services for the community’s most vulnerable. This year’s grants bring the collective grant making of the Baptist Healing Trust to over $57 million since 2002. The Baptist Healing Trust was created when Baptist Hospital in Nashville sold to St. Thomas Health Services, a ministry of Ascension Health in St. Louis, Missouri.
