My Friend’s House – Advocating for At-Risk Youth

Register for FREE Virtual Leadership Event

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Laura Jumonville, Executive Development Director, and Juanda Moore, Executive Program Manager, with My Friend’s House, who highlight the nonprofit group-care facility that serves male youth ages 12-18 who are in state custody. The home is one of a few across the state of Tennessee and the only one of its kind in Williamson County. The house provides temporary residential support that offers a secure, structured, home-like environment with trained staff on hand 24/7. During the interview, Jumonville and Moore discuss the program, impact, how the community can help, and more.

The house provides temporary residential support that offers a secure, structured, home-like environment with trained staff on hand 24/7. As a home, the program provides three nutritious meals a day plus snacks, a comfortable single bed, a hot shower and clean, appropriate clothing. Many of our residents have not had these
simple things provided to them in the past. Residents are also expected to follow a schedule and contribute to daily household chores. This normalcy and routine goes a long way toward helping a youth feel safe and nurtured, which in turn allows them to deal with and overcome their past traumas.
