The Mountain Ascent is a publication of our New Economy Program designed to shine a light on the building blocks of the new economy that is rising to meet the challenges of today in Southwest Virginia. We will share real news and voices from our communities that demonstrate the change, successes and failures that we believe are necessary to ensure our region remains an incredible place to live.

Our goal is to inspire you with these stories that show the results that can be achieved through community action. Have news or a story to share? Let us know!
