“We are in our 10th year. People said we couldn’t do it, but God said we could,” said Brooks House executive director Liz Reese.
Before his untimely death, Brooks Franklin, a reporter for The Lebanon Democrat, researched the homeless population in Wilson County and wrote several award-winning articles on the subject. These feature stories made the community aware of the size and plight of the homeless population and especially the need for temporary shelter for women and children in our local area.
“It has just been a testimony and a day of joy every day I go to the Brooks House,” Reese said.
