The Appalachian Women's Guild & Family Center is a grassroots organization built by the people it serves who make the road by walking it. Our mission is to act as an agent of change in the community in which it lives and breathes. Through interaction and faith, we strive to empower the small still voice that says, "I can." By listening, learning, and doing, we create the patchwork of many voices, many hands. We accept change and fulfill our mission by helping others help themselves. We seek to give a "hand up," not a "handout", to build self-esteem,confidence and a feeling of hope.
