The House of All Souls

The House of All Souls is a permanent group home for men in Chattanooga, TN. The vision for the House of All Souls came from Brother Ron Fender, bsg, who learned from his experience living in Saint Matthew's Shelter for Men that many homeless men are suffering a disconnect from social support structures and a sense of community.

This vision led Brother Ron to pursue the development of a community home for up to ten men, all of whom suffer from the perils of addiction and homelessness. In the House of All Souls, men will have the opportunity to live together with a ready-made spiritual and cultural support group.

Thanks to a wonderful partnership between Rosewood Supportive Services and the Chattanooga Community Kitchen, Brother Ron's vision should become a reality in early 2009.
