Social Impact

Everything we do is driven by our mission to serve West Virginia children and families. No matter what form our work takes—emergency child shelters, youth mentorship, clothing and food pantries, adoption and foster care, providing resources to grandfamilies—we’re always striving to create better and brighter futures for kids.


We take pride in our culture of collaboration and comradery and believe strongly that only through teamwork is real change possible. Because of our dynamic team, we’re able to serve over 15,000 children, youth, and families annually.


Most positions with us are not behind a desk, but entail interacting directly with the children, youth, and families we serve. With locations all across the state, our programs and services are not only accessible to but also shaped by the communities of which they’re a part.


No two days are the exact same with us. We encourage creativity, thinking outside of the box, and approaching challenges in new ways.

Lifelong Learning

If we aren’t seeking to become the best version of ourselves, it’s very difficult to help others do so. This in mind, we prioritize providing our team members with opportunities for continued growth.
