Hancock County in upper northeast Tennessee is one of the poorest regions in the state of Tennessee with one of the lowest per capita incomes of any city in the United States.  An astounding 36% of the population live below the poverty line.  In this small mountain community jobs are hard to come by.  Many residents don’t even have access to clean water.  Run4Water has been ministering to the needs of Sneedville since 2010.

Our mission will be to:

  • Partner with non-profit Run4Water, who has a long-standing presence in the community
  • Establish a relationship with the community & identify needs
  • Provide Thanksgiving meals to families
  • Possibly engage in minor home repair, or the installation of Clean Water facilities for families.
  • Our accommodations will be in a chalet nearby to Sneedville that sleeps 30+. We will be partnering with a group from Friendship Christian School in Lebanon, TN.
