Affordable Homes of South Texas, Celebrates its Roots with Opening of New Construction Services Building
October 4, 2023, witnessed a significant milestone at South Texas Affordable Homes, Inc. (AHSTI): the Grand Opening of a new building for its Construction Services department, located at 514 South 16th Street in McAllen, Texas.
The grand opening event, hosted by Affordable Homes of South Texas, Inc., was a celebration of the organization’s success and a tribute to individuals who played a key role in its founding and in guiding it through a mission to improve the quality of life for the area’s low-income and underprivileged residents by providing them assistance and homeownership opportunities.
The event featured speakers who reflected on the organization’s remarkable journey since its founding as McAllen Housing Services in 1976. This journey began as a response to a City of McAllen Planning Department survey of the housing conditions in the city which revealed that many families within the city limits were living in substandard conditions, including the lack of the basic amenity of indoor plumbing.
Two exceptional individuals, Arturo “Tito” Torres and Randy McLelland, instrumental in AHSTI’s early history, were honored with the dedication of conference rooms in their names. Their leadership and selfless contributions of time and effort helped in shaping the organization’s enduring future. Today, AHSTI is proud to have evolved into becoming a “one stop” solution for all of a homebuyer’s needs by offering a variety of services including building homes, homeowner education, financing, home improvements, emergency repairs, rental and mortgage assistance, and much more.
