RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE
Empowering people through loving care.
It’s been our pleasure to support Nathan on his path to recovery, housing, and independence. Nathan had experienced homelessness since the age of 13 and was incarcerated over 200 times. He has made great strides in his recovery, is managing his mental health, and is adjusting well to independent living. Learn more about Nathan in the video below!

The Residential Services program is the largest housing program for people who have mental illness and substance use disorders in the Nashville area. We also understand that many people have difficulty maintaining housing, so support services are offered to residents to meet those challenges.Three types of housing are offered:
Independent – permanent and affordable houses or apartments
Supported – supervised living in a group setting with staff on duty 24 hours a day (separate male and female houses)
Homeless shelter for women (Campbell House) – transitional housing for up to eight (8) women.
At Park Center, we believe that work is a healing force in a person’s recovery.
