What We Do

Appalachian Outreach, Inc. (AOI) is a nonprofit poverty relief organization that assists people experiencing poverty and disaster in Ohio, Marshall, and Wetzel counties in West Virginia. We believe in the dignity of every person, and we’ve been working to ease the burden of poverty in our state for over 20 years by fulfilling unmet basic human needs. AOI gathers and transports donated materials to poverty- and disaster-stricken residents of its service area. AOI responds to calls from individuals and organizations by donating requested items to those who need them, whether through disaster or because of household circumstances.

Our Mission

AOI exists to ease the burden of poverty for people in need in Ohio, Marshall, and Wetzel counties. We have become proactive in serving the people of these counties by polling the residents for their needs and then packing the delivery truck with the requested items and delivering them.

How You Can Help

AOI depends on the generosity of its supporters to achieve its goals. You can help by participating in our projects, contributing to our fundraisers, becoming a sponsor, making donations, or simply committing to pray for the organization. If you would like to be a part of AOI, please contact us.
