Change lives and lift your community by becoming a sponsor.

Aphesis House is a non-profit organization offering services to all individuals who desire community employment but need additional support to succeed in the community work environment. Our mission is to provide transitional living homes for individuals being released from incarceration. Furthermore to promote self-esteem, self- confidence, and advanced training to empower each participant to change their behavior and habits and enable the individual to re-enter society.

If you’d like to help us reach our financial goals towards our dream of building a brand new campus to house over 150 men, please donate below.

Personal and corporate giving tiers:


1 man, 2nd chance: $50 – Help us bring one man to his new home and set him up for a chance at a brighter future.

1 man, 1 dollar, 1 day: $90-$365 – Sponsor one man for the 90-day period we work with him from initial release until he is ready and able to pay rent. Or, sponsor every day for a year to impact more lives.

Basic needs: $250 – Cover basic needs for our men like bedding, food, and personal care items they might not otherwise have without our programs.

Security: $500 – Cover building operating costs and basic healthcare support.

Family: $1,000 – Cover case management support, relationship counseling, activity programming, and events and entertainment that help our men form healthy relationships.

Esteem: $2,500 – Cover life skill training, personal financial management skills, and job coaching to help our men have the skills to achieve their potential.

Self-actualization: $5,000 – Cover transitional support for graduates who are striving to reach their potential. 

Dismantle the System: $35,000 – Taxpayers pay roughly $35K/year to keep one man in prison. Help us dismantle the system through our proven program where that same amount of money will help up to 80 men come into their own potential to meaningfully contribute to society and break the cycle of recidivism.
