Disaster Relief

Christian Appalachian Project’s Disaster Relief Program provides immediate assistance to Appalachia areas suffering 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 aid with home and property cleanup and repair in the wake of major disasters.

We respond to these situations with speed and efficiency while remaining keenly aware of this region’s specific needs.

“After the flood … everything we had was gone. CAP extended a helping hand. I thought it was just too good to be true. Everything we had just kept being taken away. There were so many bad things happening, but then we realized there are a lot of good people out there.”

—Casey Mullins
