Improving the quality of life for individuals with unique learning challenges

Join us as we aim to raise
to support our growing programs
by purchasing a large vehicle/bus!

We are excited that we are able to offer services to more students in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas, however, with an increase in students involves an increase in staff thus the need for additional transportation for all. Your donation will enable us to continue to offer the highest level of education and services to our students by being able to utilize our community thru educational field trips, community outreach events as well as support our adolescent program.

The adolescent program prides itself in being able to offer skill building opportunities both in the classroom, in our transition progam but most importantly out in the community. Being able to learn job skills, grocery shop plus much more; we are able to help our students be more prepared for life after school.

Please help us raise much needed funds to purchase a large transportation vehicle so we can continue to offer our students the opportunity to explore the Roanoke Valley and learn needed skills.

By donating to BRAAC on Roanoke Valley Gives day you will
be directly supporting the students we serve.
