Temporary Homes Provided By Non-Profit For DCS In Middle Tennessee

Jun 15, 2023 | Political News

One nonprofit organization is helping to provide temporary housing for children placed in custody of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services as foster homes are located for placement.

Several Middle Tennessee areas have already seen results from Isaiah 117 Safe Houses that are open in Coffee, Franklin, Grundy, and Rutherford counties. Homes in Davidson and Robertson are in the process of being opened as well.

The Coffee-Franklin-Grundy County home, opened in August 2022, was the first to welcome children in Middle Tennessee. The Rutherford County home opened in Murfreesboro in April and has helped 35 children since that opening.
