MISSION

MOMENT

At the Rural Women Conference you will have an opportunity to support young women living at the Franklin House in Hutchinson. The Franklin House houses young women between the ages of 5-18. 

 

This home  provides a safe, structured and therapeutic environment for young women to grow and make positive changes at very difficult times in their lives.  Many of these girls come to Franklin House after experiencing difficulties in their communities, school or with their families.

 

The Executive Director of the Franklin House has identified 35 needs ranging from $5-$50 that participants will have an opportunity to "buy" at the Rural Women Conference.

(cash, check or card accepted)
