Did you know? You may qualify to increase your earnings or receive a scholarship to pay for your college tuition. WV STARS offers two exciting opportunities for individuals working in licensing child care, registered family child care facilities or family child care homes who qualify.
MountainHeart Community Services, Inc. would like to invite you to "Take a Hike" and participate in our Rock Hunt activity during the months of July, August and September 2018. During these months, MountainHeart staff will be hiding MountainHeart Rocks in various locations throughout the counties we serve (See List Below). We will hide new rocks in new locations each month. The idea behind this activity is to encourage people to get outside and be active, get some fresh air and possibly even win a prize.
How Does The Contest Work?
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.
