My Friend's House began its work on behalf of at-risk youth in 1982. As a nonprofit community-based organization we have sought to meet the service/support needs of the youth of our Williamson County communities and referrals from Middle Tennessee. Our focus is helping our youth change negative behaviors, learn to make good choices and provide opportunities to grow and develop into responsible young adults.
My Friend's House and its Evening Diversion Program serve youth in DCS custody in need of a stable/supportive short-term home-like environment as well as private family referrals in need of respite, community-based A&D education and family assistance.
My Friend's House, its Board of Directors and staff are equally committed to the creation of new services/supports that meet the needs of our community, its at-risk youth and their families.
We are one of the last stand-alone residential group-homes in Middle Tennessee.
An innovative program for Williamson County children and their families that offers group activities during high risk periods. Youth participate daily in life skills, team building, and educational activities.
A holiday program that allows families who are experiencing difficult financial times to receive help in providing a happy Christmas to their families.
"I think the positive thing about My Friend’s House is the staff who care about us. They take us places like the movies, the gym, play games, and watch movies like a family…”
“They (MFH) show teens how to turn their life around, and do good instead of bad. My Friend’s House gives me hope."
"My parents have told me that they see a change in me. That I have accomplished with the help of My Friend’s House over the past 7 months.”
"What I like about My Friend’s House is that staff cooks and takes care of me. I like when groups come to spend time and play games with us. This is the best group home ever."
