    The Breakthrough Neighborhood and Community Living

    Our South Knoxville neighborhood contains seven beautiful homes for adults with Autism. We are excited to say, our third phase of construction is complete! Phase III includes efficiency apartments and a larger duplex housing unit with a large activity area and staff living quarters.

    We are actively seeking land donations for additional construction projects. If you or someone you know has land that Breakthrough could develop please contact the Breakthrough office at (865) 247-0065 or e-mail us at: for more information. Breakthrough also offers community based residential housing options, with many of our clients residing in supported living environment.
    Breakthrough Corporation's first program offering is the Respite and
    Recreation program for adults (age 18 and older) with Autism.  Held on Saturdays, this program allows individuals with Autism to more fully experience their community, exercise, develop new skills, relax and develop friendships as well as providing respite for caregivers.

    The Respite and Recreation program matches each participant one-on-one or in small groups with trained staff. For more information please contact us at or call (865) 247-0065.
