Manna House

Update from Bob 08.23.16


Mission Statement

To provide safe, quality and affordable housing to all in need, from homelessness to permanent housing, to rental housing, to home ownership and to provide quality healthcare and superior senior housing for our senior citizens.

Home Ownership

Fairview has provided new and rehabilitated homes under the Affordable Homes Initiative. These homes are for low-income families and are priced from $60,000 to $135,000. These homes qualify for the First-Time Homebuyer Program through Tennessee Housing Development Agency.

With the addition of the new and rehabilitated homes, Fairview now has programs in place that fulfill the spectrum of continuum-of-care in housing, transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing within one agency.

Having identified chronic homelessness and transitional housing as one of the most serious deficits in Northeast Tennessee, Fairview has continuously strived to meet the need of placing and keeping people "under roof."

For the paswt 18 years, Fairview has operated the Manna House, a 24-bed facility for the chronically homeless, veterans, and those seeking assistance with substance abuse.  In partnership with The City of Johnson City, Fairview has purchased and renovated the Downtown Apartments using HUD Home Grant.

Fairview has also developed Harmony Ridge, a 92-lot single-family home development for first-time homebuyers, in Kingsport, Tennessee. Additionally, Fairview also sponsored a Neighborhood Networks Computer Learning Center, and a number of community service projects and classroom service-learning coursesthrough partnerships witharea agencies, colleges and universities.
