The Roan center in West Frankfort offers a variety of services including the "night's shield," a children's emergency shelter that provides short term housing and services for children who have been removed from their homes.
They have an outstanding facility and offer novel approaches to keep siblings together and providing long-term housing for older teens.
In order to appreciate this comprehensive center for children in need, we felt a tour was in order. Debby Whitlatch visited the center just prior to it's opening.
