55 Years of Community Action in the Heart of Appalachia

Due to the COVID- 19 situation, AppCAA offices will be closed to the public until further notice, but we are providing services.  Regardless of where you live in Lee, Scott & Wise Counties and the City of Norton, please call our main numbers located at the bottom of this page and let us know your needs at this time.  We look forward to serving you soon!

In order to comply with the Virginia Governor’s social distancing order, AppCAA’s October 26th Board of Directors meeting will be held virtually.  If you would like to “attend” please call our main office at 276-452-2441 for more information.  The meeting will start promptly at 6 pm.

Formerly known as RADA, AppCAA has effectively served the needs of low- to- moderate income individuals in southwest Virginia since 1965. AppCAA serves Lee, Scott and Wise Counties as well as the City of Norton.
