The Healing Power of Nature

This is a challenging time for all of us, but help may be just outside your door. Exposure to nature has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood and promote healing. A 2019 study says spending just two hours per week soaking up the outdoors can boost health and well-being, both mentally and physically.  

Davidson County residents can enjoy time outside and get some mood-boosting physical activity on the city's more than 300 miles of trails. In the coming weeks, nearly 200 city-run parks will also re-open for Nashvillians to enjoy. In the
Nashville Community Health + Well-being Survey23 percent of Nashvillians reported using community trails for biking, walking or other activities weekly

Nashville Response Fund Update

Even though parts of the state are opening back up, Nashville remains under a "Safer at Home" order which means many businesses are still shuttered and Nashvillians remain out of work. The COVID-19 Response Fund is helping, but more funds are still necessary to meet the growing needs of our community.
