The Ebby House

The Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities is more than a shelter – it is a home for young girls ready to launch into successful adulthood who have suffered abuse, neglect or foster care in the past.  

This strength-based program mentors up to 12 young women at a time for up to 24 months to instill life skills, provide housing, healthcare, education, career guidance, job training and permanency.
