The Davidson County Drug Court residents and graduates have been busy telling their life stories to students in area schools. This is a "fresh" addition to the program's community service work tract. Program participants have historically been seen in the community and on the residential facility grounds cutting grass, painting, and cleaning. Now, they are trying to help kids make decisions that they wish they'd made in the past. They talk about what using drugs does to a person's life. They encourage kids to stay in school and to choose good peer groups and to reach out for help if they need it! These real life stories seem to connect with the kids.

Drug Court residents assist the Salvation Army with their annual Christmas Angel Tree Project each year. Each day volunteers are taken to the Salvation Army to sign up needy families in the Nashville area for Christmas donations.
