Mountain Outreach

Mountain Outreach is a non-profit service organization operated by the University of the Cumberlands. Since its inception in 1982, students and volunteers have completed more than 150 home building projects and completed renovations to hundreds more.  The program’s outreach includes numerous service projects that help provide children, the elderly, and financially struggling families with critical and urgent needs throughout the Cumberlands service region.

Ways You Can Help

Volunteers help set a wall on a MO house


Mountain Outreach wants our community to view the program as a resource that will meet the needs of our residents through acts of kindness and actions of service. To be able to fulfill that goal, we encourage volunteers from throughout the Cumberlands community to step forward and support MO with their time and knowledge. We will maintain a roster of volunteer partners and make them aware of opportunities to serve throughout the year. 


The need is great and the financial support of friends, alumni, and foundations is vital to continue our outreach.  While much has been accomplished this past year and over the many years since the programs humble beginnings, there remains a great amount of work yet to be done. We wish to continue our mission of helping those less fortunate to have a better way of life, but we need your help to keep the Mountain Outreach program going year round.
