BOONEVILLE, KY - APRIL 16: Owsley County Outreach Center director Cleda Turner chats with a resident in front of a school bus used for donated supplies on April 16, 2012 in Booneville, Kentucky. Turner was born and raised in the county. The center provides services to the underpriveleged in the county including backpacks filled with easily prepared meals for school children who were found to go without meals over weekends. Daniel Boone once camped in the Appalachian mountain hamlet of Owsley County which remains mostly populated by descendants of settlers to this day. The 2010 U.S. Census listed Owsley County as having the lowest median household income in the country outside of Puerto Rico, with 41.5% of residents living below the poverty line. Familial and community bonds run deep, with a populace that shares a collective historical and cultural legacy uncommon in most parts of the country. However, the community of around 5,000 struggles with a lack of jobs due to the decline in coal, tobacco and lumber industries along with health issues including drug addiction without effective treatment.
