Rome Learns About Home For Troubled Teens

· Reading Time: 1 minute

The Exchange Club of Rome received a first hand report on troubled teenagers from representatives of the Murphy Harpst Home in Cedartown, Georgia, one of only three such facilities in the state who take emotionally troubled teenagers in a residential setting.  Fellow Exchange Brian Hampton and the Rev. Scott Fuller outlined the tragic lives of many of the residents and the programs the facility utilizes to turn their lives around and move them into society…often through foster homes.  Both speakers emphasized the importance of Rome’s Exchange Family Resource Center, Georgia’s only accredited Exchange Child Abuse Prevention Center, in the early intervention of professional help for families that can work to eliminate the conditions that bring about the tragic influences on these teens lives.   @exchangestrong
