APA (Appalachian Parent Association), aka Appalachian Crossroads, operates for the purpose of providing personnel, services, activities, programs, and facilities for the evaluation, training, employment, socialization, support, and transportation of persons who have developmental disabilities, handicaps, economic disadvantages, or are aged, to enable them to become more productive and functional members of society, to promote their quality of life, or to maintain themselves in the community.

The 100+ individuals served range from being profoundly handicapped to very mildly handicapped, young adults to seniors, and in good health to having complex medical needs. To meet the needs of such a diverse group, the agency provides a full continuum of services aimed at assisting individuals to have the supports necessary to live, work, and socialize in the community according to their preferences and abilities.

  • Appalachian Crossroads values living in the community, meaningful age-appropriate activities, choice, dignity of risk and interdependence.
  • The agency has developed a broad continuum of services and supports in alignment with its values and with the needs and preferences of the people we serve.
  • Our services enable people to live, work, play, and retire.

Highlight: Leadership Transition: William (Bill) Aspinall retired on June 30th after 29 years as the Executive Director of Appalachian Crossroads. Bill was a leader with a vision of quality and a dedication to the mission and to the individuals served.

Scott Hollingsworth assumed the Executive Director position on July 1st. He is well known for his role as the Director of Day and Vocational services and has a deep commitment to continue to build options and opportunities for individuals with disabilities to work, have friends, enjoy community involvement, live independently and to follow their dreams.

A fairwell reception for Bill was held on June 20th giving the members of the Board of Directors, individuals served, family members, staff and the community at large a chance to thank him for his years of service and for all that has been accomplished under his leadership.
