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
The Site for the Learning Annex is located just below the current thrift store and food pantry (pictured here).
