Elgin Foundation serves children in rural Southern Appalachia to encourage the habits of lifetime wellness, educate them to become lifelong learners, and empower communities to proactively create and provide environments where every child will flourish and mature into productive citizens.
Communities will always play an important role in the growth and development of children across America. Children thrive when they are part of a cohesive community which encourages them to grow and learn in today’s world. A community’s ability to provide children proper healthcare resources and progressive educational opportunities are keys to influence a child’s life.
