The Appalachia Service Project is an organization headquartered in Tennessee that addresses the housing needs of Central Appalachia. Facilitated by an ASP administrative staff, Hockessin UMC youth and adults give of their time, resources, and talents. Projects range from repairing foundations to roofing a house -- and everything in between!
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.
For 30+ years, Hockessin UMC has sent teams of youth and adults every summer to make homes warmer, safer, and drier for families, as well as provide transformational service experiences for volunteers.
Preparation starts in the fall with fund-raisers, Bible Study and skill development.
