Striving for Greatness is a four-bed group home located in Franklin County in the City’s Southside for teenage boys age 14 to 21. About one block east of South High School which accommodates grades 6 through 12. The youth have access to public transportation, the public library, and an emergency medical facility. We also operate a four bed home on the northside of Columbus that houses males and females ages 7 to 21. SFG is designed to help youth who are in crisis including those who may have disrupted another placement and or are in a dysfunctional home. SFG will provide the youth with a place to call home. At Striving for Greatness we believe every child should have the opportunity to loved and cared for in a nurturing environment that will allow them to live a healthy, productive and positive life.
