A new beginning is possible.
Appalachian women are under-resourced, but resourceful. Often overworked and overwhelmed, but resilient. They sustain their families and communities.
The New Opportunity School for Women provides a place for under-resourced women to build confidence and skills to make changes they want to see in their lives. All of our programs are free.
