The Price of Poverty in America

For decades, Appalachia has been a region of intense and growing hardship. Children go hungry, families live in deteriorating homes, and the elderly suffer in isolation. Your compassion can deliver tangible solutions that lift people up and transform their lives.

Your Compassion Makes A Big Impact

Hunger and Poverty Relief

Your generosity helps children, their families, and seniors become self-sufficient and build lives free from poverty and hunger.

Child & Family Development

You provide critical opportunities for children to reach their highest developmental potential through educational, physical, spiritual, and emotional support.

Elderly Services

Together, we give seniors living in need and isolation companionship, essential services, transportation to medical appointments, and renewed hope. 

Home Repair

No one should suffer in a dangerous home. Repair and reconstruction services provide safe, warm, dry, and accessible housing for families and individuals.

Disaster Relief

Catastrophes affect people living in poverty even harder. Disaster Relief provides immediate assistance during floods, tornadoes, storms, and other emergencies.

Summer Camp

A week at camp can make a difference for a child in need. Fun activities, supportive guidance, and friendship give boys and girls much-needed joy and confidence.

Prayer Requests

Our faith calls us and sustains us— that's why Christian Appalachian Project gathers for chapel each day. If you or a loved one are in need of prayers, please let us know and we will lift up your request.
