Mission Statement

ABLE Families exists to confront the systemic causes of poverty by assisting families as they make positive changes in their lives.  We help people of Mingo County, WV, who are caught in the net of poverty gain more control of their lives. We focus on women and children because they suffer most severely the effects of poverty.  We carry out this mission primarily through educational programs, including an afterschool program, GED prep, an in-home maternal and infant health education program, a nutrition education program, summer camps, and more.

Funding Needs

We have a computer lab that is used by our children in afterschool, our adults in our adult education program and members of the community who do not have internet access available in their homes. The computers are eight years old and can no longer be upgraded to work with the latest versions of software. We need approximately $15,000 to purchase 10 workstations, 2 printers and an upgraded wireless router
