The Journey to Restoring Hope

Family Service has been working in our community to restore hope since 1901. You can make sure people continue to have this resource when they face something too big to handle alone.
Barry's grandmother knew she was facing something too big to handle alone. Susan found Family Service of Roanoke Valley soon after she became the primary caregiver for her grandson.
Now, she knows where to turn when life gets off track. Barry learned about healthy risk-taking and decision-making through our life skills education groups in his after school center. He also met a counselor there who he could see whenever he needed. He learned how to manage the depression and anxiety that affected his school work and behavior.
Susan's youngest granddaughter Gracie had seen more than her share of violence and anger at the tender age of three years old.
When Susan adopted the young girl, she knew there was hope for Gracie. But it was going to take some work.
Gracie started Play Therapy at Family Service, and the family got in-home services to help reduce the stress and conflict within the home.

Raggedy Andy is showing up and chatting with people who also envision a community invested in the health and well-beign of all. He is asking you to help families struggling to be able to access the counseling, case management and life skills education to begin leading their happiest, healthiest lives.
Healthy communities begin with healthy families. If people of any age are to be successful, they must first be given the opportunity to escape circumstances plaguing their ability to learn and be productive.
Family Service is a dynamic, multi-service agency that has served a diverse population of clients by providing critical services to Roanoke Valley residents since 1901.
We offer programs and services on a sliding fee scale
and accept Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance,
so clients can afford the help they need.
Operating on a $1.9 million budget, Family Service depends on the support of generous donors, corporate sponsors, local, state and federal grants, allocations from United Way, and public funding. Insurance reimbursements and program service fees paid by clients do not cover all the costs related to bringing treatment and therapy to families in our community.
Give Today to make sure you
have a place to turn when life gets off track.
