The Father's House is a Faith-based organization not for profit. We are guided by Section 48-68-104(2) and (3) of the Tennessee Nonprofit Corporation Act. Our Principles are based strongly on hard work and faith that a person can re-enter society with skills knowledge and integrity of heart, find gainful employment and ultimately become a productive member of society.
The Father's House, established in 1990 offers up to one-year drug free and alcohol free environment that provides transitional housing, spiritual development and learning opportunities to the poor, the homeless, the addicted, the prisoner and ex-prisoner and to those trying to escape the frequently horrendous odds of life.
