Our vision is see substandard housing eradicated and everyone who comes into contact with ASP transformed.

Our goal is to make homes warmer, safer and drier for families in need, while offering transformational experiences to families, volunteers and staff alike. Since our founding in 1969, more than 377,400 volunteers from across the nation have repaired 17,373 homes. Appalachia Service Project serves the mountainous Central Appalachian region where Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia come together.
