Formerly a twelve-room boarding house in Johnson City, Tennessee, The Manna House has been converted into 21 rooms of safe and affordable transitional housing for homeless men focused on improving their current situation and therein their life. All of the residents were chronically homeless, according to HUD's definition, and generally have addiction, legal problems and mental health issues. Because the residents of The Manna House have accepted the powerlessness of their addictions and have made the conscious decision toward recovery, a high level of accountability and security exists at The Manna House. During their two-year program, residents attend twelve-step meetings (e.g., N.A., A.A., Al-Anon, S.A.A.), and there is a zero-tolerance policy for alcohol and drugs. The focus here at The Manna House is to provide a refuge from the storm.
