Appalachia Service Project

Here at Appalachia Service Project (ASP), we like to say that our goal is to make homes "warmer. safer. drier." for families in need. Our service area spans more than 25 communities in 5 states in Central Appalachia, where we hope to eradicate substandard housing. But ASP is more than just a home repair program--it's a relationship ministry with construction on the side.

ASP offers volunteer opportunities throughout the year. We are looking for youth, college, and adult volunteers. Our minimum age requirement is 13 years old, and volunteers must have completed the 8th grade for our traditional volunteer program. We are expanding to offer a junior high and middle school program in the summer that will allow volunteers who are 11-13 as well. Volunteers typically register as a group of at least 5-7 people, which is equal to one work crew. Larger groups can have multiple work crews. For every 5 youth members, we require 2 adults. All skill levels are welcome.

During our Year-Round Program (trips during September-May), groups can choose between 2-5 work days. The cost is $65/day/volunteer. This covers lodging, food, programming, and construction materials.

During our Summer Program (June-August), groups arrive on Sunday, work Monday-Friday, and leave on Saturday. The cost is $325/volunteer. This covers lodging, food, programming, and construction materials.

Mission Statement

Appalachia Service Project is a Christian ministry, open to all people, that inspires hope and service through volunteer home repair in Central Appalachia. Our vision is that substandard housing in Central Appalachia will be eradicated and that everyone who comes into contact with this ministry will be transformed.

Description

Appalachia Service Project (ASP) provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation -- bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families.

Our philosophy of service has remained the same since our founding: ASP encourages people to act responsibly in the face of human need and injustice.

By transforming faith into ASP service, volunteers respond to a specific need: housing. By putting aside their own needs and desires, ASP volunteers free themselves to share talent, love, and concern with the people of Appalachia and with one another. More important than construction know-how is a willingness to enter the communities and homes of Central Appalachia with sensitivity, concern, and love - accepting people right where they are and just the way they are. Come serve with us and Connect. Build. Transform. #ASPhome
