About ASP Home Repairs

Note: ASP will not be completing home repairs during the summer of 2020 due to COVID-19. You are encouraged to submit an application for next year and we will keep your information on file until we return to your county. For specific questions, please call our office at (423) 854-8800.

What types of repairs does ASP do?

Including, but not limited to:

  • Roofing – Replacing and repairing roofs can lead to significant improvements, mitigating damage caused by leaks.
  • Drywall – Drywall projects can be ceiling repair, wall repair, or part of a room addition.
  • Siding – Repairing existing siding or installing new siding weatherizes a home from the elements, making it more efficient and reducing utility costs for homeowners.
  • Floors and Foundations – Ensuring floors are sturdy makes homes safer, giving families the ability to make better use of their space.
  • Porches and Ramps – We often build or restore porches and ramps to make homes more accessible for our families.
  • Home Replacement – In some instances, a new home may be built, however this comes with added qualifications and is limited to certain locations.
  • Other – Based on your home’s specific repair needs and our volunteer skill level and budget availability, other repairs may be performed.

Who does the repairs?

  • Most construction is completed by unskilled volunteers in groups of 5-7. Groups may include adults, college students, and youth.
  • Projects are selected and managed by a staff of young adults, and overseen by ASP full-time staff.
  • Certain projects will be completed by subcontractors as needed, but these are on a case by case basis.
  • Homeowners and their families are invited to take part in the repairs as able.

How does it work and who's eligible?

  • ASP provides all supplies, materials, and labor needed to complete selected projects. There is no cost to homeowners.
  • Stick-built homes and mobile homes are both eligible for ASP services.
  • ASP requires proof of homeownership before starting work (deed/title). If you do not own the home/land, additional paperwork will be needed.
  • ASP will complete repairs for those renting their home and/or land, however a lease amendment will be required with cooperation from the owner.
  • Homeowners are responsible for creating and maintaining a safe environment for our staff and volunteers.

ASP is only able to serve a small percentage of those applying.  We keep applications on file for three full years.  If you have a question regarding the status of an application or would like help completing an application, please contact our main office at (423) 854-8800.

Applying for Repairs

Step 1

Complete an application for home repair either online or by mail. This helps our staff know what repairs your home needs and how to contact you.

Please note: ASP believes that each person is a child of God, imbued with dignity and worth. All are welcome to respectfully and peacefully participate with ASP, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status.

Step 2

In late spring and early summer, ASP staff and volunteers will visit a selection of homes in each county to evaluate projects. If you have your deed or title for the house, please have it available for the staff when they visit.

Please note, not every home will receive a visit. Visits are determined based on the written applications.

Step 3

Staff in your county will notify you directly if your home is selected. Homes are selected based on time availability, budget, volunteer skill level, amount of additional need in a county, and other factors.

If your home is not selected please note, ASP keeps all applications on file for 3 years, and it is possible that ASP may be able to complete your repairs in following years. You may resubmit an application after 3 years or if there are changes to your application.
