Believing that the most important investment in defeating the cycle of poverty is the empowerment future generations, our program partners in the poorest regions of the country are equipping children with brighter futures for themselves and their communities by providing basic needs like: shoes, coats, and food, and through after school help, summer camp programs, and much more.
We seek to solve household hazards like leaks, mold, buckling floors, crumbling roofs, and rotted-out doors that many families in Appalachia have to endure because of a lack of funds and housing options. Our Home Renovation programs support local efforts to fix, renovate, and, in some cases, completely rebuild houses; giving residents a safe and comfortable place to call home.
The Safe Places Program assists women fleeing domestic violence by providing up to 24 months of transitional housing for themselves and their children, while offering supportive services and resources to assist in rebuilding their lives. By offering these resources, individuals are equipped with the training and support needed to be able to thrive on their own after leaving our transitional housing program.
We partner with local organizations to provide food, clothing, blankets, emergency medical assistance, and more for people in need. Our partners know the needs and challenges faced by the individuals in their communities who are struggling to provide the basics for their families. They know the best ways to support these families and through their programs and ensure families don’t go without.
Our soldiers and their families have given so much to the country. In the communities we serve there are many veterans who need just as much help as the rest of the people of the region in fighting the cycle of poverty. We ensure our partnering programs provide emergency assistance such as food; clothing, blankets, utility assistance, and home repair benefiting veterans in need.
