45 never looked so good!

June 28, 2021 is a milestone for Affordable Homes of South Texas, Inc. Normally, getting older is something that is not eagerly welcomed, but in our case we embrace it!

When an organization turns 45, it means stability and a strong reputation for helping the community. We are fortunate that we are still young enough to trace back our roots and have some of the original founding members still around to speak with and to provide insight into what it was like in 1976 when the organization was created.

Founding Board Member, Arturo "Tito" Torres

Founding board members like Arturo “Tito” Torres who has some great stories of when the

City’s planning survey was published that revealed the substandard living conditions that some McAllen residents were living in. These conditions included no electricity, no indoor plumbing, and in some cases structures that were connected to each other haphazardly.

Throughout the years, we have added many stories to our archives. These stories have shown lives positively impacted through our program. They also show an organization that has evolved to serve the needs of their community. What started as a home repair program is now a one-stop homeownership program focused on creating successful homeowners and helping them maintain homeownership.

In the last 45 years, we are proud to say that we have served over 4,000 families and due to our program structure, we are also proud to say that the original $180,000 raised in 1976 is still circulating in our revolving loan fund.

Whether you have been thinking of buying a home or repairing your home we invite you to come and learn more about Affordable Homes of South Texas, Inc. We are backed by 45 years of experience and service. Visit or call us at 956-687-6263. We can’t wait to meet you!
