House of Hope mission is to rehab homeless men.

At Monday's Franklin Board of Aldermen meeting, Lowell Monteith approached the board to plead for support from the town and also from the surrounding community at large. The need for support stems from a county wide need of a local homeless and rehabilitation center.

“Last week I had over 15 people come to me who had nowhere to go,” said Monteith who serves as the director of New Hope Center, a non-profit organization that in the near future will offer a shelter for men. “We require a six month commitment from our clients. They have to stay with us. This isn't just to fight homelessness, it's also a rehabilitation center.”
