Centerstone Receives Grant from Nashville Predators Foundation

Centerstone’s Intensive In-Home Treatment Services receives gift of $5,000

Nashville, Tenn.—Centerstone, the nation’s largest not-for-profit provider of community-based mental health and addiction services, recently received a grant of $5,000 from the Nashville Predators Foundation. The grant will go directly to Centerstone’s Intensive In-Home Treatment Services, which provides high-intensity individual and family counseling in the home or community when there is a child with serious emotional or behavioral problems. The goal of the program is to keep the family together, safe and in their own home.

During a ceremony on April 20 the Nashville Predators Foundation distributed 113 grants, totaling $350,269 to Nashville and Middle Tennessee-based community service and charitable organizations. The grant awards marks the 14th such distribution by the Predators Foundation since its inception in 1998. Since then, the Foundation has awarded more than $3 million in financial grants to deserving organizations.

“We are honored to receive this grant from the Nashville Predators Foundation,” said Kathy Ballinger, Director of Centerstone’s Intensive In-Home Treatment Services. “Our Intensive In-Home Treatment provides vital services to children and adolescents who might otherwise not get the help they need, and therefore are at risk of out-of-home placement. This grant will help us to keep Middle Tennessee children and families together and thriving.”

Of nearly 300 grant applications, the Nashville Predators Foundation’s grant committee selected program recipients that primarily benefit youth and families, which is in line with the Foundation’s mission. Centerstone was one of the 113 total organizations selected.
