The Voice of the Vols
joins The Housing Hour this week to continue Part III of our discussion of United Way of Greater Knoxville.
Bob Kesling is a long time media personality that always displayed the true volunteer spirit by helping non-profit agencies around Knoxville. United Way has been Bob’s passion for several years now, and on this week show, Bob discusses the wonderful things that they are involved in and explains his role in adding Susannah’s House as part of the United Way.
In the second half of the show, Rebekah Fetzer describes the phone call she received from Bob and how that phone call enabled Susannah’s House to become a part of The United Way. Rebekah explains the role of Susannah’s House and how they change and transforms lives.
Susannah’s House is an Intensive Outpatient Recovery Program for mothers in recovery. They exist to serve the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of mothers and their children. Their mission is to provide a source of help and hope in a therapeutic, Christian community for women and their children to break adverse cycles and rebuild their families.
They provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment for individuals and families to achieve sobriety, enhance mother and child relationships, and build better life skills while promoting spiritual growth. They believe destructive cycles can be broken and want to serve women who have the desire and commitment to change. Our program is a holistic set of modules for mothers determined to recover from opioid addiction and establish a safe and supportive family system. Susannah’s House is staffed with professionals in recovery and social services fields and is supported by volunteers from the Knoxville community.
Susannah’s House is a faith-based ministry started by Cokesbury United Methodist Church in 2013 and now operating as an independent, not-for-profit organization with the gracious support of the community at large. We partner with many churches of various denominations and non-profits throughout the community to serve our families with the highest level of care possible!
