Safe – Loving – Independence – Home

The Shepherd’s Haven residential homes are just that; homes. They are designed to assist men and women with special needs to learn independence, relationship skills, and self-care in a Christ-centered, family environment.

All of this is facilitated by couples on Shepherd’s Haven staff who live on the property to love and care for our residents.

The Residential Homes

The Shepherd’s Haven homes are located on 47 acres of land in Fayette County that was purchased in 1991.

In 1997, Shepherd’s Haven opened the first eight bedroom home for men with special needs.

In 2009, a second home was completed making room for eight ladies with special needs.

Both of our residential homes are licensed through the State of Tennessee. Our men’s home is licensed as a Semi-Independent Living Services Facility and our women’s home is licensed as an Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Boarding Home Facility.

Each resident has their own room to personalize as they wish and they share a bathroom with one other resident. Eating areas and living rooms are communal, just as any other home is to help facilitate a family atmosphere.
