Red Bird Mission, Inc. and Red Bird Clinic, Inc. have been providing ministries in this region of the Appalachian Mountains (Red Bird River Valley, Beverly, Kentucky) since 1921. Today the need remains critical in this isolated, rural distressed area. Chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountainous terrain provide obstacles to a fuller life for the residents of this area. Red Bird Mission strives to meet these needs through ministry in five areas: Education, Health and Wellness, Community Outreach, Economic Opportunity and Community Housing Improvement.
The mission committee chose this project for our Thanksgiving Offering. Funds received will be designated for the Education ministry and given in Memory of Allie and Jeanette Curtis, long- time supporters and volunteers at Red Bird.
