Non-Profit Assists Families Affected by Addiction

Local News

KANAWHA COUNTY, WV (WOWK) – For 92 years, Mountain Mission, Inc. of the Kanawha Valley has made it its mission to serve family members who struggle financially, including those affected by drug addiction.

A year ago, Donna Adkins gained full custody of her granddaughter Breelyn, whose mother is battling addiction and father in jail.

Donna supports herself on a fixed income but did not have enough money to support her granddaughter. The two were living in Indiana at a friends house, then moved back to West Virginia in February of this year with just two suitcases of belongings.

They didn’t have furniture, Breelyn was sleeping on the floor and it was hard to put a meal on the table.

Donna and Breelyn are currently living at Dunbar Towers and the Activities Director, Jeremiah Ege, connected them with Mountain Mission to seek help.

Mountain Mission was able to provide the grandmother and granddaughter beds, furniture, food, toys, clothes, toiletries and much more, giving them new hope for the future.

Mountain Mission is always accepting monetary donations, non-perishables, clothing, and furnishings. You can also sign up to volunteer through this organization.

If you’d like to help families who are negatively affected by addiction, Mountain Mission can be reached at (304) 344-3407.

Mountain Mission is also on Facebook and can be contacted through there as well.
