When children are removed from their homes out of concern for their welfare, they are usually taken to the Department of Children’s Services to await placement with a foster family. This wait can be several hours to nearly a full day.
The Isaiah 117 House provides a place for children to go when they are removed by DCS. This house meets the needs of the children while the DCS staff work on foster placement.
Isaiah 117 House serves Coffee, Franklin and Grundy counties.
Recently the Coffee County High School football team collected 2 van loads of toys, pajamas, diapers and toothbrushes, plus $700 for Isaiah 117 House.
