About

Thank you for visiting Park Center’s website and for your interest in our mission of empowering people who have mental illness and substance use disorders to live and work in their communities.

We’re proud to have been a part of the Nashville community since 1984. Our staff, volunteers and Board of Directors strive to keep our mission at the forefront of everything we do – providing safe, affordable housing for people who have nowhere to go; offering outreach and benefit assistance for people experiencing literal homelessness; providing employment services for people who have been unable to obtain work; offering counseling for people struggling with mental illness and addiction; and helping young people make the transition to adulthood.

I hope you will get involved in Park Center and learn more about the life-changing work we do in our community.

Sincerely,

Doug Berry, Chairman

Park Center Board of Directors
