Frontier Housing’s two AmeriCorps members, participated in the Kids Against Hunger service project; together with over 400 other members they put together 80,000 meals!
We are excited to bring two Build Corps members onto our team! Tyler Mullins (left) will help with marketing & outreach and Tyler Greer (right) will support our lending division. Wish them luck!
We are so grateful for the continued support of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, long-time partners of Frontier Housing. They recently visited our office and took a tour of some of our developments.
“Making a sandwich was kind of a gamble.”
Can you imagine not being able to use your own kitchen? It’s been called the heart of the home, but you would steer clear of it too if your own heart might stop from black mold exposure. Morgan Mullins is deathly allergic, but that wasn’t his only problem. The home he rented was so unlivable that the City of Morehead was compelled to acquire it.The pre-HUD Code mobile home fell far below the standards of today’s building materials and specifications.
Morgan and his partner, John Henry, won’t be there to say “good riddance!” because they will have moved on, into their own Frontier home.
According to Morgan, Frontier staff maintained consistent contact; face-to-face, over the phone and through email. “They made it their business not only to help us, but to educate us so that we could stand on our own without additional help,” he explained.
“Frontier performed magic for us,” Morgan said, “They finished way ahead of schedule and we have everything we need.” Believe it or not, their mortgage is nearly half of their previous rent payment. Since their new home is ENERGY STAR certified it performs better than other new homes in the market area and hugely better than their previous rental. Their utility payments are sure to be a fraction of what they were used to paying. Now they can entertain their social circle with grace and out of state guests as well. Standing in his pristine kitchen, Morgan took a deep breath and said, “Frontier Housing saved our lives.”
