Coalfield incubates and grows a family of social enterprises in economic fields it believes have the potential to diversify the regional economy and create good jobs. Chosen fields need to have triple-bottom-line value. Each enterprise has a President who is the entrepreneur responsible for its success, and is staffed by work-crews according to the 33-6-3 model. As a result, the entrepreneurs pioneering them, the crew members working within them, and the region hosting them can develop toward full potential. In addition to mentoring crew members, each enterprise hosts professional training and certification opportunities which are open to the public, enabling hundreds to advance career goals.



To support a family of social enterprises that inspire the courage to grow, the creativity to transform perceived liabilities into assets, and the community needed to cultivate real opportunity in Appalachia through mentorship, education, and employment.
