“Coalfield Development has been one of the leading organizations addressing community revitalization and transformation in the West Virginia southern coalfields for the past ten years. It's been inspiring to watch them transform a dream and a vision into a robust, effective business that has employed hundreds, trained thousands, and put shovels in the ground to turn dilapidated abandoned buildings into vibrant, useful housing and community space. Coalfield Development was a founding partner of the Abandoned Properties Coalition, and has been an active and trusted partner of our work at the WV Community Development Hub for the past decade. They show up when they promise to, do what they say they're going to do, and consistently go far beyond anyone's expectations of what is realistic and achievable. They demonstrate what magic can happen when you dream big, walk beside and support West Virginians who want to transform their lives and their communities, and always act with integrity and humility. I can't wait to see what they accomplish in the next ten years."
