Shining a Light on the Future of Free Transitional Housing for Knoxville Women in Recovery: Noon's House

Next Step Initiative (NSI) plans to expand its Noon’s House, a rent-free, no-cost transitional housing program for women experiencing houselessness who have completed an inpatient treatment program and are actively in recovery. Noon’s House is the only free transitional housing program in Knoxville. From NSI’s work in Trenches 2 Treatment, they have identified an urgent and immediate need for cost-free transitional housing for women newly in recovery. Unfortunately, cost barriers to sober living residencies have left the most vulnerable members of our community unsheltered.
