Group Workcamp Elkview, West Virginia

Elkview is in the beautiful Kanawha Valley of West Virginia’s coal country, taking its name from the wonderful Elk River that flows through the area. Although it is near the busy capital of Charleston, little growth in manufacturing, professional, or construction jobs has left this area with a struggling economy.

The dwindling coal industry has hurt folks in this area and a devastating flood in the summer of 2016 caused more damage than anyone expected. With much work still left in the process of rebuilding, Elkview is a great location for the hands and feet of Jesus to make a different. Throughout one week in this community, you will discover a chance to help individuals who lost almost everything and are longing for a new connection and helping hands.

For ages 12+

Elkview residents have a plethora of projects waiting for you! From wheelchair ramps to skirting projects, painting to weatherization, you are guaranteed to make a big impact on the flood victims and elderly residents of the area.

Our Partner

Five counties are served by our local community action partner. Home repair is a small but important aspect of what they offer, and we are glad to have a strong history with them. Some of the residents you serve will know full well how our partner can assist them, while others may be hearing of the home repair opportunities for the first time. Regardless of their knowledge, our partners are strong and impactful in their community and we are proud to partner alongside them!
