About our foundation
Why we help
It is a pleasure to serve the Wilson County Community. Many women are not computer savvy or have the skills to become employed in this present work environment. Their greatest challenge seems to be the fear of learning new concepts. However, our passion is to help them break through that fear by providing motivation and empowerment tools. In order to achieve our mission and vision, we are commited to provide innovative, practical and top-quality services to our community.
To provide educational services that uplift, equip and empower women in Wilson County, and beyond -- this is more that just and empty slogan. We are an army of compassionate and talented soldiers, determined to help others in need. But we're are always in need of more troops. Click below to find out more about how you can help serve.

The GRAYCE Project
The Grayce Project is a six-week intensive program designed for underskilled or unemployed women that offers on classes in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. Through participation in the program we help our students become more capable, committed and enter the mainstream of society with more confidence and knowledge than when they had started the program. By the end of the program, we hope at least 75% of the women will be employed as a direct or indirect result of their involvement with the GRAYCE Project at Healing Broken Vessels.
Intensive 6-Week Program
Partnering with the National Council On Aging (NCOA), the GRAYCE Project is a 6-week intensive program designed to develop technical skills for unemployed or underskilled women. The program offers basic computer skills, internet "hacks" and proper use, and classes in Microsoft Office 365.
The program is an integrated approach that also helps to develop personal skills, interpersonal issues, issues dealing with procrastination, and time management. In some of the program's more direct approach of tackling community issues, Healing Broken Vessels has taught classes and seminars in alcohol abuse and drug resistance skills. The program is designed to strengthen abilities in the following areas of career development, personal management skills, time management skills, and greater sense of purpose and meaning with a focus on personal development.
Life Beyond the Program
Through the GRAYCE Project, Healing Broken Vessels boldly addresses social issues in the community such as health and financial literacy and generational wealth building. Outside out the workforce and personal skill development, the more that seem to go through the GRAYCE Project, the more people we seem to keep adding to our staff.
We try often to enrich the lives of those in our community through education and research, and the results are powerful. Attendee learn new technical skills and quickly integrates them. After a while they develop affinity for quick learning, integrating, and applying even more technical skills and knowledge outside of the GRAYCE Project.
A Strong, Supportive Network
The GRAYCE Project seeks to help women be able to better overcome personal challenges within themselves and the workplace. We at Healing Broken Vessels help to develop the skills to be more confident and competive in a world that is constantly changing and presenting new challenges.
One of the more surprising ways you can learn a new skill is to teach it to someone else. And many of the GRAYCE Project's alums continue on to help as a volunteers, staff members, and board members at Healing Broken Vessels, using some of what they learned at HBV to give back to the center.
Microsoft Office 365 Training
Organize your life. Microsoft 365 isn't only for work. It can help you make the most of your time so you can focus on what matters. Use the tips, templates, and tools in these kits to manage events and activities, and get things done.
Healing Broken Vessels offers trainining to Microsoft Office 365 to participants. We teach GRAYCE Project participants to perform complex calculations easily and handle automated tasks using macros. We teach functions like SUM, AVERAGE, LOOKUP, index/match as well as many other functions and time-saving techniques.
