IN KNOXVILLE, over 7,600 people are HOMELESS.
Chronically homeless individuals are Knoxville’s most vulnerable population. We exist to help them by tending to their specific needs, restoring their dignity, walking with them in relationship and welcoming them to a place they can finally call home.

Restoration and Redemption
“A lot has happened on the two acre plot of land where Flenniken Landing sits since 1850 when it was built as the Flenniken School House… but the original mission has remained.
We believed that rehabilitating a historic building could mean more than the removal of an eyesore. It could mean transformation. It could mean a new life for people living within its walls. It could mean a more vibrant community. It could mean the world…If the project was to be successful, then its success would have everything to do with God’s heart for the down and out, for the ‘least of these.'” (Excerpt from Flenniken Landing, A Story of Hope and Redemption)
