As the 12th-largest human services charity in the United States, Christian Appalachian Project served over 36,000 eastern Kentuckians during its most recent fiscal year. In addition, CAP’s gift in kind program called Operation Sharing, provided assistance in all thirteen Appalachian states, reaching over 1 million people. Following its faith-based principles, CAP is helped by donors, volunteers, staff and the community to provide a variety of programs that have proven successful in helping people help themselves. CAP concerns stewardship and innovation.
We’re so grateful to have an opportunity to begin serving CAP as it invests in portions of the AmeriCorps Impact Suite for its AmeriCorps and long-term volunteer programs. Those programs provide education, poverty-relief, disaster relief, and volunteer services.
