Everything we do is driven by our mission to serve West Virginia children and families.

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.

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