Appalachia Service Project
Our work with the Appalachia Service Project helps to address housing issues in central Appalachia…but it’s so much more than that.
- It’s seeing groups of volunteers of varying skill levels accomplish so much to make homes warmer, safer and drier
- It’s a work team member taking time out from his work to sit and play with a child at the worksite – because that personal connection is just as important as the repairs.
- It’s the bonds of fellowship that form – with each other and with those we’re helping.
- It’s the powerful moment when a team of youth complete the first indoor bathroom a family has ever had.
Since 2004, we’ve sent adult work team twice a year on weekend trips to work on ASP projects. We work out of the year-round ASP centers in Virginia, Kentucky, and West Virginia. We’ve also sent youth teams for week-long trips in the summer.
If you go on an ASP trip, you’ll find yourself transformed by the experience, and you’ll help to transform the life of someone you’re helping.
How can I help?
- Join an ASP work team! We take teams in the spring and fall (usually around April and October), leaving on Thursday and returning on Sunday. You don’t have to have construction experience – there’s work for everyone and for all skill levels. To find out about the next trip, email Allison Nunnery or call her at 919-614-0331.
- Donate. ASP relies on donations of money, materials, and time in order to accomplish its mission. Although they are excellent stewards of all that they are entrusted with, the need is always greater than the resources available. To donate or to find out more about ASP, visit their website at asphome.org.
