Appalachia Service Project builds it’s first home in Kingsport

Appalachia Service Project (ASP) is building another home for a family in need in our region, this time in the Model City.

KINGSPORT (WJHL) – Appalachia Service Project (ASP) is building another home for a family in need in our region, this time in the Model City.

Within the past year, ASP built a number of homes in Washington County and Johnson City, but now ASP volunteers are working on their first ever, Kingsport (Sullivan County) home.

The house will also be the first home ASP builds for a homeless person.

Just a few months ago, Appalachia Service Project workers were pushing to finish several homes in the region before winter hit.

Now with the return of spring weather, ASP is moving forward with plans to expand its operations.

“Not just Johnson City, Washington County, but to greater Northeast Tennessee and eventually greater Appalachia,” said ASP Tri-Cities Center Supervisor Will Crumley.

Crumley told News Channel 11 this specific project was made possible by working with several other organizations like Open Doors, Friends and Neighbors, student volunteers from Bucknell University, and several local churches.

Crumley said ASP hopes to have the home done by the end of April.
