Our Mission

Approved by the TN Board of Probation and Parole, Aphesis House gives men a way out of the cycle of injustice and invites them to the threshold of a better life. By giving them a place to start anew and by giving them the tools to rebuild, we help them rejoin their lives as better husbands, fathers, brothers, and citizens.

We believe that no one is beyond redemption, regardless of the nature or scope of mistakes they have made in the past. This conviction is at the core of everything we do, and is why Aphesis House is one of the few transitional housing agencies in Tennessee that will turn no one away based on their criminal history.

While the fight for equality is big, and change can feel impossible, we think making a world of difference doesn’t always have to look like a grand statement. Sometimes it’s just a matter of looking as far as the city you live and starting to make meaningful change—one man at a time.
