Stepping into sabbatical: a conversation with Renee Rizzo

The Healing Trust has given 10 Sabbatical Grants over the past two years to nonprofits in Middle Tennessee.  Sabbatical Grants provide support for a nonprofit organization during a period of sabbatical for its CEO/Executive Director. We believe that the CEO's time away is beneficial for the individual, the interim staff, and the organization's sustainability. President/CEO of Hope Clinic for Women, Renee Rizzo, graciously agreed to share some of her insights from this unique opportunity.
