Appalachia Auxier Center

The Auxier Center was founded in 2000 in Floyd County, Kentucky by Charlie and Sue Schaffer at the behest of Reverend Ralph Beiting of the Appalachian Christian Project. Floyd County is one of the poorest areas in the country–over 75% of the schoolchildren live in homes below the poverty level. The Auxier Center was established to address the needs of the area and become a hub for community activities.
