By the the time this post is published, I will be on my way to Nashville for a weekend visit to a friend. So, in honor of my trip, I want to highlight a charity in Nashville that is doing amazing work for women who have an addiction. The Next Door is an addiction treatment center in Nashville, TN that uniquely caters towards women. This stands out to me because most rehabilitation facilities seem to be co-ed or male-focused. They offer residential and community based services, as well as transition services for women who have been incarcerated. They also don’t just serve Nashville. They have two other locations in Tennessee as well. In their own words:
The Next Door provides physical, emotional and spiritual rehabilitation for women in crisis from drug addiction, alcohol addiction, mental illness, trauma and/or incarceration. We are dedicated to serving women in crisis, equipping them for lives of wholeness and hope. As a non-profit organization, we able to serve those of various financial means.
So, this week’s suggestion of how you can change the world is to give to or serve with this great organization that is bringing hope to women dealing with very difficult situations. Don’t live in Nashville? No problem. They are also a top-notch nonprofit with a very high 4 Star Rating from Charity Navigator. If you want to find other highly rated charities, check out your city’s regional report from the website so you can serve with an organization that demonstrates financial transparency and integrity.
