Providing high quality affordable homes in Nashville helps to create stronger families and a more vibrant community.

Be a Helping Hand has recently given six families new homes to raise their families, and in the process provided job opportunities for local workers.

BHH leveraged $262,942 from the Barnes Fund, $276,536.42 from MDHA through the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, and $405,511 from Tennessee Housing Development Agency to construct the homes. The completed project consists of three townhomes units, both with two four-bedroom homes, providing a total of six homes with a monthly rent of $670 for low-income families that earn 50% of AMI or below with disabilities.

The homes were constructed to be energy efficient with Energy Star rated doors, windows, insulation, HVAC and appliances, with rain garden. The properties are also in compliance with Visibility and Universal Design standards to be wheelchair and handicapped accessible.
