Horizon Houses and Five Rivers Housing provide permanent supportive housing for adults with chronic and severe mental illness.


Catholic Charities staff provide non-medical case management services to residents. The goal of the program is to allow clients to be as independent as possible within a safe and home-like environment. Our adult group home residents benefit from residential neighborhood settings; each home features up to 10 private bedrooms.

Horizon and Five Rivers’ group homes are in Knoxville, Maryville and Morristown.

* This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
