On the Record, Ep. 69: "Isaiah 117 House"

Welcome to On the Record, a weekly podcast with news, sports, and nightlife segments. This week Lurah Spell talked to Ronda Paulson, the executive director and founder of Isaiah 117 House, about her nonprofit organization, which provides a safe, temporary place for children in Carter County to go after they’re taken from their homes into Tennessee Department of Children’s Services custody until caseworkers can find foster homes for them. Paulson, Melissa Hall and Lisa Lundberg also talked about expanding the nonprofit into Sullivan and Greene counties by working to open a Isaiah 117 house in each county.
