A home with more people than rooms and no indoor plumbing is classified as substandard.
In some areas of Appalachia, nearly 17% of the homes meet these qualifications.
For this reason, Americans Helping Americans® supports local organizations in home repairs. We complete extensive home repairs, including, but not limited to, roof and floor repair, insulation and handicapped ramp installations in Appalachian communities in Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee.
In fiscal year 2012, Americans Helping Americans® provided support to, Appalachian Outreach, Big Creek People in Action, Ocoee Outreach, Come-Unity Cooperative Care and Community Connection to provide much needed home repairs to 228 families. The program starts in May and runs through September.
