All children need a home to provide a sense of security and unconditional love. Unfortunately, for many children, “home” is a place devoid of these necessities. 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 1600 children have been welcomed since. A Friend’s House operates as a home for children in the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services or the Juvenile Court System. Residents stay for an unspecified length of time while a best course of action is determined based on a child’s assessment needs.
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. Please join us in our effort to improve the lives of these special children. Please visit our website afriendshouse.org
