Provider Watch October 28, 2015 - Together Georgia Welcomes A Friend's House
In 1995, a group of concerned Henry County citizens decided to take a stand for abused, neglected and abandoned children. The result was A Friend’s House, a home for children in crisis. The doors opened on October 27, 1998 and over 1880 children have since been welcomed. A Friend’s House operates as a home for children in the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services.
The support of Henry County citizens helped build A Friend’s House. The dream is still moving forward as additional construction was completed in 2006 on a million dollar expansion that doubled the size of A Friend’s House. This expansion includes an additional 12 bed adolescent wing, additional offices and much needed storage space.
A Friend’s House is dedicated to meeting the emotional and physical needs of children in crisis. Services such as counseling, medical treatment, academic assistance and recreational opportunities are available for the children.
Together Georgia is honored to welcome A Friend's House as its newest member.
