Kentucky Educational Television (KET) will broadcast Christian Appalachian Project’s documentary: “50 Years in the Mountains: The Story of the Christian Appalachian Project” the month of May (dates and times listed below).
Narrated by actor Martin Sheen, the documentary shares this history of Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) through videos taken of Rev. Ralph W. Beiting (founder of Christian Appalachian Project in1964) who passed away in 2012, and interviews with CAP program recipients, employees and volunteers.
Since that time, CAP continues working to serve people in need in Appalachia by providing physical, spiritual, and emotional support through a wide variety of human service programs, including child and family development centers, home repair, summer camps, counseling services, in-home respite care, emergency assistance, education for parents of children with disabilities, community education and advocacy, services for the elderly and a Christmas basket program. These programs directly serve thousands of individuals and families each year. www.christianapp.org
