Shehva Kier, resident manager of Moody Home in Franklin, spoke at the Franklin Kiwanis meeting recently about the services provided to young mothers and their children.
Mothers, 18 years or older, who have custody of their children or are in the reunification process with the Department of Social Services and who are in need of a safe place to live may apply.
In addition to housing, the Moody Home enables the mothers to continue their education while learning life skills and gaining employment.
The women can complete an application themselves or can be referred. Applicants are interviewed, give personal references, submit to a background check, and sign a confidentiality agreement.
