Our History

Aphesis House Timeline

Aphesis House was formed in 2003 by James Settles, a native Memphian who came to Nashville after life changing events brought him to a place of needing a transition of his own. At a young age, James’s choice to pursue the street life of fast money and other run-ins with the law resulted in him spending eight years of his life incarcerated. However, through the caring support of positive mentors and an effective transitional housing program upon his release, James was able to turn his life around for the better.
