CAP AmeriCorps members will provide housing services, long-term hunger support, emergency assistance, disaster relief, early childhood education, character education and tutoring, summer programming, and elderly and disability services for residents of 14 Eastern Kentucky counties. AmeriCorps members will be responsible for a number of positive outcomes, including affordable, safe, warm, and dry housing, decreased food insecurity, the immediate meeting of crisis needs, increased school readiness and non-cognitive skills, and greater independence and social support for the elderly, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 1,000 volunteers who will be engaged in housing repair.
