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).

social events of the year:

The Family SERVICE VIP Dinner
on Thursday, October 7th from 5:30-8:30 PM
at the Hidden Valley Country Club
