In June 2016, ADVANCE opened their newest group home.  The home is called Franklin House in honor of former President/CEO, Larry Franklin.  The project was a joint effort between the ADVANCE Board of Directors and the ADVANCE Foundation.  Funding for the project came from many sources, including:  private citizens, ADVANCE board members, our business partners, the Fishback Financial Community Fund, the ADVANCE Foundation, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines.  The home has eight private bedrooms, an open floor plan, large kitchen island, sun room with southern exposure, accessible whirlpool bathtub, and two outdoor patios.  The house turned out beautifully and will serve the needs of the people we support for many years to come. Our sincere appreciation goes out to everyone who made this project possible!
