Who we serve

Who We Serve - Helping OutSince 1964, CAP’s work has focused on promoting dignity and independence among Appalachian residents struggling against poverty. Family structure is preserved in order to make life better for citizens.

The Appalachian region stretches from the northeast corner of Mississippi through the southwest corner of New York and in the hardest hit areas of the 13 states, more than 50% of children live in poverty. Through the prayers and generosity of CAP’s supporters, we have the opportunity to live out the Gospel each and every day.
