near the capitol city of Charleston. A town of about 3000 families, St. Albans faces what many small towns are facing: closed stores, few businesses, aging and poverty.
WVMAW has partnered with the St Paul Community and Economic Development Corporation at the invitation of Rev. Michael Poke to bring hands of hope and help to families in this community. This is an ecumenical effort that has brought together Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists and many others to remind us that we are all one in Christ Jesus.
ACCOMODATIONS: You will be staying in the First Presbyterian Church. There are bunks, a fully equipped kitchen, and showers. You may need to bring cots or air mattresses.
SURROUNDING AREA has plenty of grocery stores and fast food locations.

For work in the local area, WVMAW is pleased to partner with this community development agency.
