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 still helping additional individuals right here in the Roanoke Valley learn to cope with the effects of trauma and stress, in addition to those that originally that were already seeking our services. FSRV does so much fundraising because many clients are either under-insured.
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!
