What We Do

TENNACITY was created to help trauma survivors in Middle Tennessee lead active and fulfilling lifestyles. TENNACITY works to facilitate access to hands-on physical therapy and strength training for these survivors who don’t have the financial resources or access to pay for these services out-of-pocket.

Who We Partner With

TENNACITY accomplishes our mission through valued partnerships with the following:

  • Acute-care, long-term care, and rehabilitation facilities to seek out and identify patients who need further therapy and training after their initial hospital stay.
  • Physical therapists to provide hands-on therapy to TENNACITY-sponsored patients
  • Health and fitness specialists to work TENNACITY-sponsored patients through a training plan to regain strength, movement, and confidence to continue a healthy and active lifestyle moving forward

How the Application Process Works

Step 1: Apply – Trauma survivors who need further help in recovery fill out a TENNACITY Application (click here to apply) with appropriate information, including a doctor’s medical release, and financial sponsorship application.

Step 2: Review – Once an application has been submitted, our Advisory Board and Executive Team work together to determine an individualized treatment plan and sponsorship level, if approved.

Step 3: Begin – If approved, TENNACITY-sponsored trauma survivors work through the plan with our partners to recover and set themselves up for a long-term active lifestyle.
