Celebrating Heritage, Changing Lives

We are improving lives by addressing critical issues surrounding literacy, food insecurity, and access to traditional arts.

MEETING THE CHANGING NEEDS OF Central Appalachia

Who We Are

Honoring the past, improving the present, and planning for the future of central Appalachia.

Since our founding in 1902, Hindman Settlement School has evolved to meet the changing needs of the region. The Settlement’s work today includes education and service programs that address the critical needs of youth and families while promoting the rich traditional arts of Appalachia.
