For 25 years, Steps House has been affectionately referred to as “The Home of Unconditional Love.” With its founding principles of integrity, love, compassion, and a deep desire to help others, Steps House has opened its doors to thousands of men and women who sought refuge from the devastation caused by the disease of addiction and the ravages of homelessness.

Our 38 home sites and 140 beds provide shelter to those in East Tennessee while they find their way back to productive lives. We serve people fighting addiction or homelessness. We serve veterans. And we serve pregnant women who are dealing with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) or who have children under two years of age and need a safe place to live.

Our programs are focused. Residents have to remain sober and as they recover, they become employed. Some stay long term, and when they do, they give back by helping others in the program. We insist upon responsibility. But we reward it with respect, independence, and opportunity.


If you need help, or know someone who does, reach out to us now, and we can tell you quickly (usually the same day) how we may be able to help. Just complete this form or give us a call at 865.573.7152.
