Rural Development Inc. provides monetary support to the Franklin County Regional Housing and Redevelopment Authority in its mission to provide services to families in crisis.  These services range from the provision of basic needs such as access to food and clothing to the provision of basic furniture (tables, chairs, beds etc...) for families who have recently been placed in permanent housing. Because each family faces unique challenges on the road to a stable housing situation, the flexibility of funds provided through RDI is indispensable.


RDI accepts donations by check or money order made out to Rural Development, Inc. Donations can be dropped off at our offices or mailed to us at the address below:
