Foundation House Helps Single Moms Learn the Essential Skills They Need to Thrive
In Bradley County, Tennessee, 76 percent of single mothers were formerly incarcerated, have lived in homeless shelters, or were raised in foster care. Foundation House is here to help.

More than just a place where women can learn practical skills that can benefit their career, it’s also a safe haven that provides counseling, rides to doctor appointments, GED classes or other job readiness programs. 

Graduates were able to find employment, and are grateful for the role Foundation House played in getting them there. “My proudest accomplishment from my time there is becoming who I am now,” says former resident Kayla Jones.
