Welcome to MountainHeart Community Services, Inc. Please feel free to look around and see what we have to offer.
Since March 2018, the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health has reported an increase in the number of confirmed cases of acute hepatitis A virus. This increase in cases has primarily been among injection and non-injection drug users, homeless or mobile individuals, those who have been recently incarcerated, and individuals co-infected with hepatitis C. Viral sequencing has linked cases from Kentucky and California.
Ten years ago after teaching middle school mathematics for thirty years, I retired from the education system and began searching for activities to occupy my “free time”. I was already highly involved in church activities locally and regionally and had participated in several volunteer mission trips to Russia, Alaska, Mississippi and West Virginia projects.
Within weeks after retirement, a close friend and employee of MountainHeart – Summersville told me about the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program offered by their office. Knowing that I had spent my career working with numbers and computers, she asked if I might be willing to volunteer. Then within days I was training and began assisting tax-payers in the 2008 tax season.
MountainHeart Community Services, Inc. and the employees of West Virginia Birth to Three RAU 5 would like to thank the members of the Elkins Rehabilitation & Care Center for the donation drive. With the generous donations we received we will be able to provide a children’s book to all West Virginia Birth to Three families in Randolph County.
Please take a moment to complete a short survey regarding available child care in your area. The survey will be used to determine the need for additional child care services in West Virginia. We also ask that all participants share this survey with your contacts throughout your community.
Thank you for assistance in helping us collect this necessary data. Please print out the flyer below and display in your office to promote the survey.
