Overview

Our organization exists because in 2009 volunteers started to address concerns about housing in Wayne WV. It was quickly realized that traditional charity was not nearly enough to address the deep generational challenges we face. After intense community engagement we pioneered a relationship based holistic approach to on the job training. Unemployed and underemployed people were hired to construct green affordable housing. Trainees worked the 33 6 3 model each week 33 hours of paid labor 6 hours of higher education class time and 3 hours of life skills mentorship.Today we have grown into a family of social enterprises working throughout the region as a leader in the building of a new economy during the wake of the coal industry s rapid decline. We have created more than 40 on the job training positions more than 200 professional certification opportunities redeveloped more than 150000 square feet of dilapidated property and successfully launched five new businesses in real estate development construction wood working agriculture and artisan trades industries based on local assets and having real viability in the Appalachian region. Coalfield Development operates as a family of six social enterprises. A social enterprise is a business that combines the compassion of the nonprofit sector with the efficiency of the for profit sector.
