Franklin County Family Resource Center

MAY FEATURE STORY


One of the 16 programs the Franklin County
Family Resource Center operates is an
Emergency Domestic Violence Shelter. When a victim and their children are assisted by this program, they are provided many of the comforts most take for granted like, shelter, warm bed, clothing and food. Food is extremely exspensive. The SML Rotary Club heard our plea for help in purchasing "meats for meals" and did just that! The SML Rotarians donated $500.00 to purchase meats for meals, (breakfast, lunch, supper) and just look what we were able to get!
