Enrich House at Academy Street- Tour the home! Join the remodeling effort. Make a donation!  Located at 1314 Academy Street, the house is within walking distance of the Williamson County Public Library and Academy Park in historic, downtown Franklin.  This house will be remodeled to accommodate four female residents including two individuals with IDD . The home will provide each roommate with an affordable housing alternative and the supports needed to pursue a full life.

This first Enrich House will serve as a model for additional homes that can be adapted to serve adults with all abilities.
