Mountain Projects

Mountain Projects started in 1965 as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty through community action agencies. Since that time, the organization has significantly grown and diversified, existing to help people help themselves and make their community a better place to live. They do this through a collection of 21 programs from Head Start to senior resources and transportation to housing, including the Smoky Mountain Housing Partnership.
