Mission: To provide low income families with the opportunity to build and own their own home in six impoverished kentucky counties of cumberland, clinton, wayne, mccreary, whitley and bell.
Programs: Southern tier housing corporation's (sthc) mission is to provide low income households with high-qualify, energy efficient, housing opportunities. Sthc workes with households to qualify for financing, select land on which to build a home, and select a house plan. Sthc builds the homes, sometimes as the general contractor for a turn-key job and sometimes through a mutual self-help method which brings together households (often 4-8 households) to cooperatively build their homes. Sthc also provides project management expertise to other organizations who are in need of expertise and capacity to carry out housing initiatives in their communities.
