Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) AmeriCorps Caseworkers provide short-term emergency assistance, including food, utility assistance, household goods, and clothing. Family Advocacy caseworkers are often a participant’s first contact with Christian Appalachian Project—they assess the needs, provide any necessary short-term assistance, and make appropriate referrals to other CAP programs or community agencies. In addition to the responsibilities above, this volunteer takes applications for CAP’s Housing program.
CAP AmeriCorps members also have the opportunity to participate in CAP's Volunteer Program. CAP Volunteers commit to direct Service, intentional Community, and Spirituality. In addition to their service, most CAP volunteers share in dinner and devotion several nights a week.
