Welcome to Aphesis House

We give formerly-incarcerated men a way out of the system—by giving them a place to start a better life.

The formerly-incarcerated are 10 times more likely to be homeless due to discrimination. And, in Tennessee, 50% of them will return to prison because they’re stuck in a system that works against them.

A safe place to belong is one of our very basic needs as humans. We give men an environment where they can experience love, support, and stability—sometimes for the first time in their lives. 

Of the 1,000 men who’ve completed our program, only 5 have gone back into the justice system. 

But right now, over 200 men are on our waitlist. 

They’re ready and willing to change their lives, but we don’t have the space to house them—yet. 

We have big dreams to change that.

The future of Aphesis House — with your help.

We have the opportunity to build a campus in Madison, TN, where we can give over 150 more men a supporting home as they learn the life skills they need to rejoin their lives as better husbands, fathers, brothers, and citizens.

Our goal is to raise $1.2 million dollars to make this possible.

If just 25% of Nashvillians give $10, we can get there.

Help us end the cycle of injustice — one man at a time.
