The Franklin County Women and Family Shelter (FCWFS) is located in Frankfort, KY.

Shelter and community support services are provided to single women, 18 years and older and families with children, including couples with children, men with children and blended families with children.

Our shelter currently serves single-parent and intact families and single women.  For couples without children, the female may reside at the shelter, but the male will need to stay elsewhere (we suggest the Access Soup Kitchen and Men's Shelter located nearby at 311 W. Second St) and, if approved by staff, can visit in the community room during office hours.

Regarding Pets
We do not permit personal pets to remain with clients while they are residing at our shelter.
