Economic Development

Changing lives in rural Appalachia!

We are always working with leaders in the rural Appalachian Counties we serve.

To help bring about growth and new jobs we work with county leaders in the communities in which we serve. Sometimes we serve as a conduit by introducing potential new employers to a new community where they can really impact and perhaps break the poverty cycle.


“We work with businesses and local leaders to help provide growth and develop greater economic opportunities.”
