Lee House Directors

Rest in Peace

1963 - 2020

Tony and Robbie Tenpenny are the founders of Lee House-Nashville Recovery Residences.  The Tenpenny's are Nashville natives and celebrate over 42 years of personal combined recovery from substance abuse.  Tony served in Metro Nashville governement for many years and understands the need for safe and affordable housing for ALL people in the community.  Robbie served as a Davidson County Court Services counselor for several years and has a big heart for people struggling with personal life challenges.

The Tenpenny's devoted their time, talents, hearts, and recovery experiences to the misson they see as a critical Nashville issue; providing safe, secure and recovery-oriented residency to men and women in need of a hand-up in their journey to renewal.  

Robbie is a hands-on advocate for people seeking clean, upscale affordable housing with a measure of leadership and guidance as residents embark on the path to a new life of sobriety.  Lee House Nashville operates three "sober-living residences" with a firm focus on responsibility, accountability, and integrity.


Tony and I are committed to the mission of helping people rebuild, restart and re-learn the beauty of sober and responsible living from right here in our lovely little corner of Nashville.

We'll love you when love may be hard to find!
