The Rotary Club of Franklin and Kid's Place

Kid's Place is a non profit agency founded in 1991 by concerned community members wanting to improve services for abused and neglected children in Macon County. The organization does not house the children but provides a home-like enviroment with trained professionals specialized in interviewing children on reports of abuse. Professionals also perform medical exams and provide counseling. Kid's Place does not charge for counseling and other services. Kid's Place does bill Medicaid when possible. In 2012-13 The Rotary Club of Franklin was able to help Kid's Place financially with a $2000 donation to help meet its goal of $20,000 to get a matching grant. A Rotary District 7670 matching grant was part of the contribution. This more than satisfied the requirements for the organization to obtain the matching grant from the Robert and Polly Dunn Foundation.
