Stable communities actively engaged in children’s lives are best equipped to help them learn and succeed. By partnering with local volunteer efforts, local operating boards, schools, nonprofit organizations, and local ministry groups, Elgin Foundation provides assistance to help foster a stable environment so children of Southern Appalachia are given an equal opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive in an ever-changing and competitive world.
