Susan Gattman, executive director of Treutlen House, spoke to the Rotary Club of Effingham County about the services that are provided by the home. Treutlen House provides secure out-of-home placement for boys ages 6-17 who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment, or who have behavioral issues.They are currently staffed by 11 workers and several volunteers.
The boys are in need of male role models who are willing to come out to Treutlen House and spend some quality time with them. Part-time employment opportunities are also being sought for the older boys to work and gain skills and experience in the workplace.
Their 5th annual benefit golf tournament will be held Oct. 1 at Lost Plantation Golf Club. For more info visit the Web at www.treutlenhouse.org or call 754-9797.
