Repair homes locally in Northeast Tennessee with your adult, church, corporate groups and youth groups.
Types of Projects
ASP projects cover a wide range of construction skill sets, so we can find something for your group regardless of experience. We'll pair your crew with a project that fits your needs and comfort level.
- 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 – Building and restoring porches and ramps make homes accessible for residents for both daily and emergency use.

“Wonderful opportunity for teens and adults to make significant improvements in the homes of others - and within themselves.”Zaq PhillipsAdult Volunteer
“"Not only have they helped make my home livable, safe, and much better looking but more than that they have touched my families heart. People took time out of their lives to show nothing but love and care to strangers. We made lifelong friends. I am just blown away by this program. I am so grateful to so many people. Thank you ASP staff and everyone that touched my life, my heart, and my family. You will always be in my heart."”Jessica HowardHomeowner
“ASP offers an abundance of opportunities to serve. I have seen the difference participating in ASP has made in our church, and I would like to help others see that as well. Every time I participate with ASP I am so amazed and impressed by the staff and their example of service.”Cecil BartonAdult Volunteer
