My Friend’s House: Building for Williamson County’s At-Risk Youth

My Friend’s House is a licensed and accredited group home with the look and feel of a foster home. Serving the needs of at least eight at-risk boys in Williamson County at any given time, My Friend’s House will soon have an improved place from which to do so. February witnessed the groundbreaking of a 5,000-plus-square-foot home on Eastview Circle in Franklin. The goal is to build a house with the safest and most secure measures available and serve our county’s at-risk boys with the best group home in the state of Tennessee. My Friend’s House is confident that a new facility will ensure the proper care of vulnerable adolescent boys in our community for years to come, providing a safe space along with the services critical for the boys’ success. The budget for the project is $600,000. As of now, My Friend’s House has obtained $300,000, allowing construction to begin. The goal is to launch a community capital campaign to allow My Friend’s House to retire the remaining $300,000.  To help, contact Tina Edwards Tina.Edwards@myfriendshousetn.org.
