Christian Appalachian Project’s Disaster Relief Program provides immediate assistance to areas in Appalachia suffering damage from floods, winter storms, tornadoes, and other major catastrophes.
Disasters disproportionately affect people living in poverty, particularly within the Appalachian region. Extreme geographic isolation, lack of adequate response crews and facilities, and poor roads increase the impact of any emergency situation.
Our relief is twofold. We provide food, water, and emergency supplies through our Gifts in Kind program, and our volunteers and staff provide assistance with home and property cleanup and repair in the wake of major disasters.
We respond to these situations with speed and efficiency, while remaining particularly aware of the specific needs of this region.
