The Mission of Family Service of Roanoke Valley is to transform lives by healing trauma and restoring hope for families and individuals of all ages through mental health counseling, case management and life skills education. The organization began in 1901. Currently, COVID-19 presents the organization's clients with new sources of trauma and stress, in addition to those that originally prompted them to seek our services. FSRV does so much fundraising because many clients are either under-insured or have no insurance at all.
Family Service of Roanoke Valley is asking us to rally our friends, family, and networks to support their work. By making a donation to our duo, you will help support more Family Service Counseling, Youth Development, Guardianship, and Personal Affairs Management services for the Roanoke Valley. We are hoping to raise needed funding that is currently lacking due to the COVID-19 crisis. This funding will go towards restoring health and hope in our community.
Please consider supporting our Celebrity Champion Duo and giving to Family Service of Roanoke Valley!
