Appalachian regions have long been known for high poverty and unemployment rates. With a lack of investment into the area, low education levels, and poor infrastructure, Appalachian families are prevented from rising above the poverty line and creating a sustainable life for themselves. Poverty and unemployment rates often double those of state and nation wide rates, like Monroe County where the unemployment rate of 8.8% is 2.3x the nations rate of 3.9%. At H.A.R.P, we look to expand opportunities which enable low-income families to grow, prosper and break free from the limitations of their location.
