About 202 - The Friendship House

Our Mission: 
Friendship House serves the Nashville community as a gateway to recovery from Alcoholism, centrally located in midtown and accessible to business people as well as the city's homeless population.
Friendship House is committed to continuing the longstanding tradition of being a lighthouse of hope for those suffering from alcoholism.

We opened our doors almost 50 years ago and serve countless recovering people each year without charge. No other recovery facility in Nashville serves it's clients without cost.

The Friendship House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation which is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. We are debt free and operate on dues from our members, donations from kind and loving givers, and grants from foundations.

Open daily from 8:30 AM to 9:30 PM

The Friendship House, known in the Nashville recovery community as “202”, provides facilities for AA meetings. Regularly scheduled AA group meetings may be attended throughout the day and evening,
7 days a week, no matter the weather.

“202” provides a safe atmosphere for fellowship with other recovering individuals. Refreshments and recovery based literature may be purchased from the staffed refreshment counter. Meeting schedules for other local AA meetings are also available.

While there is “no charge” to attend an AA meeting, a donation is taken up during each group’s meeting, helping offset the budgetary costs of maintaining the house, grounds and paid staff.

Meeting donations are unfortunately not enough to maintain the monthly budget for “202”. An additional method for supporting “202” is to become “A Member of The House”. This is a simple process which can be done quickly at the refreshment counter. “A Member of The House” makes a financial commitment of $10 a month, entitling them to discounts at the refreshment counter. But its more than just the discount, you have become a member of a place, a group of people who are committed to helping folks just like you in the process of recovery.

On occasion, some folks make larger donations or gifts, which are wisely committed to the budgetary concerns of “The House”. Please note that all membership fees, donations and gifts are 100% tax deductible. Every transaction is recorded at the refreshment counter and a receipt is always provided for your personal records.

Recovery is a very private, personal process, sometimes done in public places. If “202” has been a place which aided your recovery process, would you prayerfully consider “Paying it forward”.

We trudge together…
