Use your construction skills to build new homes for families in Central Appalachia.
Appalachia Service Project shall reconstruct an 864 square foot single-family residential unit by bringing the property to a safe, secure, and sanitary state and will involve the removal of one existing residence and the reconstruction of a new single-family home. The new home finished floor will be elevated over 18” above the base flood elevation. The property consists of 1.50 acres located in a 100-year floodplain (zone A). The proposed project is located at 114 Nattie Branch Rd Kyles Ford, TN.
Types of Projects
ASP's new homes are completed in part by our staff with subcontractors, and we utilize skilled volunteers for some key tasks, including:
- Flooring and Trim
- Porches and Ramps
ASP is able to build new homes in specific locations based on funding sources and maintains a goal to expand the program across our region.
- Northeast Tennessee – New homes in the Tri-Cities area
- Hancock County, Tennessee – This area is consistently ranked one of the most distressed counties in the state, ASP will be focusing efforts to boost this area
- Minimum group size is one work crew (5-7 individuals)
- Skilled adult volunteers preferred
- All adults must have a completed background check
- Groups must provide their own transportation. Each work crew needs their own vehicle.
- Groups provide their own accommodations and meals; ASP can provide information about where previous groups have stayed.
- 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.
