The HIM Raising Appalachia Mission Project

1. Raise the Awareness of a forgotten culture

Circumstances do not define people, and
through compassionate actions we can preserve
dignity and empower people to break the cycle
of poverty.

2. Raise Opportunities

Provide the resources and tools that help local families
not only fight hunger, but overcome personal crisis. Through
our programs and the vision of RAMP, we wish to empower
people toward a vested interest in their future,
and prevent further deterioration and exploitation of the
people of Appalachia.

On this site, in 2009, we envisioned the
erection of our Thrift Store.
Through it we will provide items
available for the needy at a very discounted price,
and give the community an opportunity to give
to those in need through donations and purchases.
The Thrift Store was completed on that site in 2011. We are ready for phase II of RAMP. Its further expansion, to include the entire lot we envisioned it upon, will not only provide items at a very discounted price, but create jobs for the jobless, vouchers
for those who participate and emergency items for those in crisis

Phase II
