WHO WE ARE

Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

Appalachian places and people unlocking their full potential, power, and purpose.

Together, we are rebuilding the Appalachian economy from the ground up!

Our Core Values

  • Gumption
  • Grit
  • Grace

Our Core Competencies

Community-Based Real Estate Development

We work with community groups, leaders, and partner organizations to develop mixed-use residential and commercial real estate projects with a social impact. Coalfield owns three rural multi-family housing properties and has an in-house construction crew. 

Personal and Academic Development

Formally unemployed people (especially laid-off coal miners) are hired on to work-crews that staff Coalfield’s social enterprises. These work crews support a variety of community projects that create assets for local residents, communities, and businesses. Each week, Crew Members complete 33 hours of paid work, 6 credit hours of higher education, and 3 hours of personal development mentorship.

Develop and Incubate Social Enterprises

Coalfield incubates and grows a family of social enterprises in sectors it believes has the potential to diversify the regional economy and create good jobs. The enterprises we support measure their value according to our triple-bottom-line: people, planet, and profit. 

Our Family of Social Enterprises

Refresh Appalachia leads our region in sustainable agriculture initiatives by supporting farmers and producers to develop the local food economy. By providing training in farm and food entrepreneurship, Refresh Appalachia transforms the lives of young people and those displaced from the coal mining industry.

Saw’s Edge Woodshop is a business and classroom where trainees learn fine woodworking techniques and visitors can learn alongside them. 

The West Edge Factory is a 96K sq. ft. building that had once employed over 1,000 people, but after closing, had sat in ruin for more than a decade. Now, West Edge is the center for Rediscover Appalachia and a welcoming place for entrepreneurs, artists, and the community.

SustainU Clothing is a licensee of Major League Baseball and manufactures sustainable apparel in Coalfield’s West Edge Factory. Our clothing production process saves millions of gallons of water and petroleum every year while reinvesting in new technology and equipment to rebuild the Appalachian economy from the ground up. SustainU is an industry leader and pioneer through its direct-to-consumer sales approach, interactive technology platforms, wholesale licensed products, and custom printing services.

Our Theory of Change and Guiding Strategies

Opportunity, willpower, and spirit are necessary to ending generational poverty. Real opportunities and lasting change cannot be simply provided; they are patiently cultivated. To achieve this, we simultaneously create new markets and the trained workforce to employ those markets. The main hook of our job training programs is that the work is paid, putting real wages in pockets. We insist on higher education because we value life-long learning. Measured mentorship represents the professional learning environment where we provide accountability and personal growth opportunities. In this way, we learn new skills by doing them on-the-job, as real employees of real businesses. We are not preparing people for the real world; we do business in the real world.
