The Appalachian Long Distance Hiking Association has dedicated itself to helping and preserving services on the Appalachian Trail. The ALDHA Care Program will provide assistance to low cost and donation only hostels along the Appalachian Trail.  

Assistance to these Service Providers will be made available via logistical support, organized maintenance and cleaning events, and by helping the hostels with day to day operations during the peak hiking season. 

Each year, ALDHA Care will deliver each of low cost and donation only hostels a package of items to help jump start their hiking season.

Additionally, one of the hostels will be the recipient of the ALDHA Care Spring Clean Up. 

If you are a low cost or donation only hostel or service provider on the Appalachian Trail, and you need assistance, or if you would like to be added to the ALDHA Care volunteer data base, contact ALDHA.
