The Franklin County Women’s Shelter was a brainchild of Jill Robinson and 40 other people who first gathered in the basement of the South Frankfort Presbyterian Church in November 2004. Through much hard work and determination, the Shelter was dedicated on March 25, 2008, and provides a place for women and children to call home while they attempt to create a healthy environment for themselves and their children. The Shelter depends on the support of the Frankfort community to keep them operating. They have 3 groups of needs: donations of time, donations of items and supplies, and financial contributions. For more information, call the Shelter at 502-352-2843 or refer to their website at: http://fcwomens.wordpress.com/.
