ABOUT THE AREA

The Appalachia region is an amazing place. An area rich in resources and beautiful landscapes. The people of Appalachia are a very humble yet proud people all at the same time. Proud of their heritage and their lifestyle, they are very hard working, close knit, family first oriented yet extremely hospitable group of people.

The Appalachian people not only have to battle the area and the natural elements of their location, their hardship has been perpetuated by the huge loss of jobs due to the decline of the mining, steel and several manufacturing industries. The shortage of gainful employment has led to severe drug and alcohol addiction issues in many communities and as a result, poverty has taken its toll. It has fractured the heart of many and hopelessness is all too common a term used by many.
