Helping Americans in Need in Appalachia


Christian Relief Services’ project Americans Helping Americans in Appalachia believes in giving a hand-UP not a hand-out. We assist men, women and children throughout Appalachia by providing food, shoes, school kits, hygiene kits, coats, blankets, toys and diapers.

Poverty in America is a daily reality for millions of people, particularly in Appalachia (a region that stretches from New York all the way to Mississippi). That’s why, since 1985, Christian Relief Services has done all it can to help alleviate poverty across America. Through our affiliate, Americans Helping Americans®, we provide emergency assistance, school supplies, new shoes, new coats, new blankets, hygiene items, monthly and supplemental food, food pantry repair, home repair, or assistance with youth enrichment projects, we are doing all we can to lend a helping hand.
