This guide demonstrates that our county has many resources to offer. We hope that this guide will bring the community together; will help professionals to resource the community more effectively, and will be user friendly on an individual basis- empowering people to help themselves.

This guide is as extensive as possible within the constraints that we had. We see this guide as a first edition and hope that it can be updated on a periodic basis. With corrections, additions and questions, contact Mary Bruce at (606) 574-0355 or (606) 574-0455.


This Guide Was Made Possible By:

This guide was financed by generous gifts of the Harlan County Extension Service and the Harlan County Fiscal Court. Durham Printing made a significant contribution to the project, donating much of their services. Organization and volunteer work was provided by Mennonite Central Committee and its SWAP Program (Sharing With Appalachian People) along with Mary Bruce who currently serves through the AmeriCorps Appalachian Self-Sufficiency Program at Harlan County Works. There were a number of volunteers who assisted the process with proofreading and computer work, for which we are very grateful.
