ASP has served Scott County on and off for a number of years. ASP works well in Scott County because there is an existing non-profit organization, called the Morgan Scott Project, and they already serve families with many different needs throughout the year. They assist ASP in finding families to assist, and are able to follow up with our work after volunteers leave the area.
