Mission Statement

Direct Action Welfare Group's vision is the end of poverty in West Virginia. In order to make this vision a reality, we advocate with low-income families for economic justice.

Direct Action Welfare Group believes....

  • Poor people of West Virginia can stand together as an organized community to fight against discrimination and the suffering of poverty.
  • No matter how poor you are you have a voice and rights as a human being.
  • Every individual should be treated fairly regardless of race, creed, nationality, income, sexual orientation, religion, gender, age, or educational level.
  • Access to services and assistance is a right and not a benefit
  • Everyone has the right to a good education including post-secondary education, medical, dental, and vision care, a job at a living wage, affordable childcare, decent housing and adequate food and clothing.
  • Every mother should have the option to choose to stay home and care for her children or work
