Mission Focus – Red Bird Mission

Red Bird Mission, guided by Jesus Christ, empowers individuals and advocates justice by providing spiritual, educational, health, and community outreach ministries in southeastern Kentucky. The need is great in this isolated, rural area where chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing and rugged terrain create obstacles to a fuller life. Red Bird Mission strives to meet the needs of their neighbors through ministry in five areas: Education, Health & Wellness, Community Outreach, Economic Opportunity, and Community Housing Improvement.

Education: Red Bird Christian school serves students in grades K-12 and centers on developing the full potential of its students in a Christian atmosphere, regardless of their ability to pay.

Health & Wellness: Red Bird operates Community Health Services which provide over 3000 health education and direct services in a 3-county area and includes over 300 home visits annually. They also operate a Dental Clinic that provides complete services for 600 patients each year.

Community Outreach: Aid includes emergency support services, a clean water kiosk, and assistance with clothing, food, and transportation needs.

Economic Opportunity: The Craft Marketing Program provides economic opportunity for craftspeople within a 75-mile radius of the Mission, purchasing crafts directly from the artisan and marketing them locally and throughout the U.S. The Red Bird Community Store provides 11 full-time jobs for community residents.

Community Housing Improvement: Volunteers provide home repairs for low-income residents such as roof replacement, painting, building porches or ramps, and grounds keeping.
