For nearly half a century, Affordable Homes of South Texas, Inc. (AHSTI) has been a beacon of hope for low-income families in the Rio Grande Valley, offering them the chance to own an affordable and energy-efficient home. With a commitment that every single one of their homes meets ENERGY STAR® standards, AHSTI is not just constructing houses; they’re ensuring that all residents of the Valley can afford the comfort of energy-efficient living.

As a 501c3 non-profit, AHSTI is committed to improving the quality of life for communities by providing homes that guarantee energy savings and greater comfort. They’ve earned recognition for their exemplary work: the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has honored them with the Leadership in Housing Award for their commitment to the ENERGY STAR® program. Additionally, AHSTI’s homes in Magic Valley Electric Cooperative communities are both ENERGY STAR® and BUILT TO SAVE® verified, a testament to their homes’ superior energy efficiency.

The journey of AHSTI from its modest start to becoming a key figure in the housing sector is marked by their unyielding dedication to quality, energy conservation, and comfort—all for the benefit of homeowners. Verified high-performance homes from AHSTImean lower energy bills, sturdy construction for lasting durability, and healthier indoor environments. This translates into tangible savings on utilities, reduced maintenance costs, and a better living environment for homeowners.

AHSTI’s impact goes beyond building homes. They offer a comprehensive array of services to support sustainable homeownership, such as homebuyer education, bilingual homeownership counseling, emergency repair grants, and mortgage financing options. Their concerted efforts ensure that even the most financially challenged in the Valley have the opportunity for a comfortable, energy-efficient, and secure home.
