Help us help those who are suffering from mental health challenges in the Roanoke Valley
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. As the pandemic continues, FSRV is helping new clients learn how to cope with the trauma and stress in addition to those that originally seeked 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. 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!
(Please note that donations are non-refundable).

Michelle Davis is the current CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of SWVA and was elected as a city council member from 2016 through 2020. She was the youngest city council member and as the only millennial on the council she used her time there to support young professionals and families, working towards making Roanoke a city that people would move to and enjoy.
She graduated from the University of Michigan and moved around to several large cities before settling in Roanoke to start a business. Although the move was meant to be temporary, she loved the way that small business owners could have a larger voice and easier access to local government here than they could in larger cities and decided to stay.
