In all these instances, the Christian Appalachian Project Outreach Program can help. Outreach is a multi-faceted program whose flexibility allows it to help people from all walks of life, with just about any problem.
For example, there is the Partners Program, which helps a person get back into school. If you need a GED or want to get your degree, Partners is the answer. Money can be granted to pay for books, tires for the car, and many other necessities so that the participant can remain in school.
CAP Outreach also offers the Families With a Future program, which enables families to better themselves by connecting directly with a caseworker, setting goals, setting a budget, etc., to help participant achieve their personal goals. The caseworker accomplishes all this through in-office visits as well as home visits.
Then there is the Emergency Assistance Program, which helps with electric disconnect notices and other utilities that need to be paid. Likewise, the Emergency Housing component helps with minor home repair that is impairing the participant's quality of life.
The School Readiness Program is one of Outreach's most successful programs. Each year, before school starts, participant students and their children enrolled in school are given a financial voucher to spend at a local discount store for school supplies and clothing. Also, there is usually a clothing distribution held at the Prestonsburg warehouse to assist with clothing needs.
As you can see, CAP Outreach cares about people. If you are interested in becoming a Partner or a participant of Families with a Future, please contact Program Manager Russ Taylor at 606-886-9718, or stop by the office in Prestonsburg at Christian Appalachian Project, 13 Happy Hollow, Prestonsburg, KY 41653.
