My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Christian Appalachian Project, Inc., Lexington, KY, USA
Mr. Patton states CAP scores highly on transparency, and I'm sure he is referring to finances; however transparency indicates honesty and truthfulness. As of today, CAP's website- under the heading "Who We Serve" and "Disabled" they list Respite services. They closed this program and terminated the employees quite some time ago. This type of misrepresentation happened when CAP closed down their Adult Education programs. Years after the programs had been closed, they were still being advertised on their website as services CAP was offering the area.
And, I am not surprised Mr. Patton promotes himself as a businessman. "More bang for your buck" is a very businesslike attitude - but not one that should necessarily be associated with a "Christian Nonprofit." I'm sure to a businessperson, outsourcing American jobs to China, India, and Pakistan gives you more bang for your buck. I would think a Christian nonprofit should be more concerned with their mission statement of assisting those who are needy in Appalachia. CAP employees that have lost their jobs, I'm sure, do not see it as more bang for the buck.
