Mending Hearts is an incredible non-profit that helps women restore their lives from addiction through a long-term program that offers hope and healing in a supportive community environment - regardless of their ability to pay.   In their 18 years of existence, Mending Hearts has never turned a woman away for her inability to pay.  I have been involved with Mending Hearts for 7 years, both as a volunteer and now as Board Chair.  I have seen firsthand that it's a place that truly changes womens' lives.   The typical client comes in after years of substance abuse, and most have lost everything - their kids, their jobs, their homes, and their self-worth.  

Almost every woman who comes through our doors has suffered some sort of trauma in their life  - sexual abuse, domestic violence, neglect or abandonment, death of a close loved one, emotional abuse, or sex trafficking.  They used drugs to self-medicate their pain.  Mending Hearts helps them put their lives back together by giving them a home surrounded by other women walking the same path to sobriety while they are learning through various individual and group therapies to deal with the underlying emotional issues that led to their addiction.  

I am asking my friends to please join me in supporting this fantastic gift of giving these women their lives back from addiction.  The Mending Hearts staff are truly doing God's work with these women who would never be able to afford substance treatment without the generosity of donors like you.  Tickets to the virtual breakfast are free, you just need to register to be sent the link to get into the breakfast.  To register or donate if you can't attend, please click on this link:

Join us for a morning of inspiring stories while we work together to help more women recover from the strains of addiction.


We are excited to meet you all online for our virtual 18th Annual RISE Breakfast on Friday, March 25th! 

Mending Hearts offers a full continuum of care that treats the whole woman from intake to independent living, and medical detox is a key component to a successful recovery. It is essential that clients have the ability to safely begin sobriety while being carefully tended to by our medical staff in our detox facility. This ensures that they can safely enter the therapeutic process that leads to healing. Our current facility can only house four women at a time, but with the growing need for services, this is simply not sufficient.

With your support, we will be able to renovate one of our existing buildings and create a larger, and more suitable medical facility. This will allow us to serve four additional women in medical detox and four more women in residential treatment. While these may not seem like large numbers, this overhaul will allow us to treat hundreds of more women a year!

Our event will feature, Erin Calipari, PhD., an Assistant Professor and member of the Center for Addiction Research at Vanderbilt. She’s been a highly regarded voice in advocating for proven addiction treatment. There will also be a few surprises. 

Set a reminder to visit our “Virtual RISE Breakfast” page on March 25th at 8:30 AM CST to watch our premiere. The virtual event will last less than an hour and you don’t even have to leave your home!

Share! Invite others by sharing the event link on your social media platforms. Because this is a virtual event, it can be watched by anyone despite location, and attendees are unlimited! Help us to make this the largest RISE Breakfast ever!

Thank You to our sponsors!
