More than 90% of children receive financial assistance to participate in our dyslexia summer program, after-school music and art programs, and weekly tutoring programs. The need for scholarship support for children is growing.
Gifts of any size will immediately be put to work providing new opportunities to learn an instrument, explore their creativity through fiber and visual arts, and educational support for children at-risk of reading failure.
RESTORE THE James Still COTTAGE
The cottage of James Still, a man declared by many as the Dean of Appalachian Literature, is in dire need of refurbishment. The Settlement desires to preserve the legacy of this historic property, create a living library seeded with Mr. Still’s expansive book collection, and provide an inspirational haven for writers to reflect on and refine their works.
Once complete, writers will be able to reserve the use of Mr. Still’s former residence as a writer’s retreat, be it for a weekend or an extended period of time. In fact, donors contributing to the renovation may be eligible for a complimentary weekend stay in the cottage.
