Link to Boston Globe article which tells the story of Emma Franchek, the young woman Emma’s Place is named in honor of and an early graduate of Megan’s House. The story ran in the March 9, 2019 edition of the Globe.
Emma’s story, tragic and inspirational at the same time, highlights the pressing need for more long-term housing for young women in recovery and why the Megan House Foundation made opening Erin’s House such a priority. Unfortunately, the Foundation’s first Success Home was still in the process of being built at the time of Emma’s graduation. It opened its doors in August of 2017 and will be joined this summer by Emma’s Place, which will allow young mothers in recovery to reunite with their children.
