Welcome

The mission of Huschka House is to provide homeless young adults in Northeast Tennessee with a safe living environment, affordable housing, and supportive services in order to ensure lifelong stability and success. Huschka House promotes equality and acceptance for all young adults.

 

The goal of our Transitional Living Program is to assist young adults who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless and help them get back on their feet. In this program, they will learn and develop the necessary skills to successfully live independently.
