The work of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters, which began in Huntington in 1924 with the formation of St. Mary’s Medical Center, now continues with the creation of the Pallottine Foundation of Huntington West Virginia. The Sisters, through their sponsorship of the Foundation, will be able to ensure a continuum of care and outreach for the community they have served for so long and with such dedication for many years to come.
Established in 2017, the vision of the Pallottine Foundation of Huntington is to continue the caring legacy of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters in the Tri-State community – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It is the mission of the Foundation to support transformative health initiatives that empower all individuals to lead lives of optimal health, self-reliance, and self-respect, and to foster systemic change and collaborative impact in our community.
The Pallottine Foundation of Huntington West Virginia wants to partner with nonprofit organizations who have the potential to inspire healthier choices for the communities of the Tri-State region. The Tri-State counties supported by the Foundation are:
- Kentucky: Boyd, Carter, Floyd, Greenup, Johnson, Lawrence, Martin, and Pike
- Ohio: Gallia, Lawrence, and Scioto
- West Virginia: Boone, Cabell, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, western Putnam, and Wayne
