APPALACHIAN PARTNERSHIP FUND MANAGER

 

About the Organization:

 

Founded and led since 1992 by Executive Director A. Toni Young, CEG’s mission was to address the health, socio-economic, environmental, and systemic challenges facing the Black community by creating and enhancing community and peer-based outreach and service programs. CEG’s mission has since evolved to encompass all underserved communities that are affected by health outcome and health access disparities, including those in rural WV. For nearly 30 years, CEG has provided culturally appropriate direct client support services, organizational TTA, capacity-building assistance, social marketing, media outreach, health promotion, and community-based research and evaluation to address pressing health needs and to create change in regard to achieving health equity.

 

Today, CEG is leveraging its decades of experience and expertise to adapt and implement successful intervention models on behalf of all underserved and disenfranchised communities, especially those in rural areas, burdened by poorer health outcomes and health access disparities.
