Our Story

After having personal experience with sober living homes in the Nashville area that were poorly managed, Jonny & Whit envisioned creating a sober living network in Middle Tennessee that enforced rules while providing a safe and affordable place to live. Founded in 2016, Farmview Homes began with one house in North Nashville. Built on technology and ethical business practices it has grown to 40 beds with locations throughout Nashville and Murfreesboro.

Nashville has become a destination location for people in recovery, boasting over 1,000 recovery meetings every week. With meeting houses like The Friendship House (202), 5925 Obrien (New Life Foundation Building), and The Nashville Recovery Center, there is always a place for people early recovery to go in Nashville during the day. Farmview Homes wanted to make sure that these men early in recovery always had a safe place to go home to at night.

Farmview Homes is social model abstinence-based recovery community for men. We are focused on providing an atmosphere of recovery for persons seeking fellowship, a clean living environment, and a supportive recovery community.

Farmview Homes has four homes in Tennessee and is dedicated to providing safe, clean, attractive recovery residences. Farmview is a social model abstinence-based recovery community for men. We are focused on providing an atmosphere of recovery for men of all ages seeking fellowship and a supportive recovery community.
