The Foundation sponsors an annual fundraising event, the Walk for Independence, to provide funds for the Community Living Services Program (CLSP) of Mountain State Centers for Independent Living.
The Community Living Services Program provides durable medical goods as well as home and vehicle modifications to allow people with disabilities to maintain their independence.
One of our current grants is a Community Services Resource grant from the West Virginia Division of Rehabilitation Services. Through the support of this grant, Mountain State Centers for Independent Living has been able to expand the existing Employment Services Division services and to extend those services into Lincoln County.

Past ventures have been diverse and include a relationship with the U.S. Department of Defense in assisting with a pilot project of establishing a community learning center for people to learn how to use computers.
