I was deeply honored to be included in a task force group to assist in caring for the children and assisting in what ever capacity was needed. I want to thank Pastor Joe Cox and " Mama" Barbara Charles for the opportunity to be a part of the program and to meet people with undying determination not only to survive but to rebuild.... Thank You "M"

In 2002 Beckley West Virginia was declared a disaster zone due to severe weather. I was asked to come help out in the area. State and federal officials set up the centers for residents who sustained damages from the May severe storms, floods and landslides in West Virginia. To date, the centers have received 3,773 visits from disaster-assistance applicants, though the number of those visiting the centers lately has declined.
The area of Beckley West Virginia was once again hit with severe weather in March and April of 2015 and declared a disaster zone.
