Appalachia Service Project (ASP) is a Christian ministry, open to all people, that inspires hope and service through volunteer home repair and replacement in Central Appalachia.

Repairing Homes, Transforming Lives
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.

High school youth and adults join with others from around the country to help improve living conditions of those in need in the Appalachia region. Groups from RLC have been participating with ASP in various places in the Appalachian mountains since the summer of 2000.

ASP Summer 2019

This was the 19th summer that RLC has participated in the Appalachia Service Project. They traveled to Harlan County, Kentucky from Sunday, June 23 through Saturday, June 29, 2019. We provided 4 work crews that performed repairs to make homes "warmer, safer, and drier."

This year's theme was “Be the Peace” (1 Samuel 25:6).

1 Samuel 25:6 says...
Thus you shall salute him:
“Peace be to you, and
peace be to your house,
peace be to all that you have.”

The cost of participation is $175, which includes room and board. Financial assistance is available.

One very easy fundraiser to participate in. Youth must be 14 years old or a rising 9th grader.
