SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) — On Friday Isaiah 1:17 House added another county to their list of homes that will provide a safe place for children to enter the foster care system.
Isaiah 1:17 House is a nonprofit organization that started right here in Tennessee.
Friday’s groundbreaking was one of the first steps in building an Isaiah 1:17 Home in Sevier County.
These homes help children who are entering the foster care system have a safe space before they are placed in a home.
“One hundred and eighty-seven, that is the number of children currently in foster care in Sevier County,” said Mallory Griffin, one of Sevier County’s Isaiah 117 House Program Coordinators.
