Building Lives of Abundance
Support an organization that believes every life is full of possibilties.
Lutheran Family Services of Virginia helps adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, from all backgrounds, work toward lives of abundance, well-being and grace, close to family and loved ones.
Supporting school-aged children
Our Roanoke-area Minnick Schools open the door to education and a more fulfilling life on any number of levels — whether by helping students return to their home school or by setting them on a vocational path that means dignity and independence at home and in the community. Highly trained educators help students learn about behavior choices, how to make better decisions, and how to respond to stressful and challenging situations.
Supporting adults with disabilities
Our Roanoke Day Support
program provides adults with disabilities activity-based, skill-building experiences in areas such as self, social and environmental awareness, sensory stimulation, fine and gross motor skills, personal-care skills, communication, learning, problem-solving, and community-living skills. Our Roanoke-area Group Homes
are safe, comfortable, nurturing and fun-filled residences. They are staffed by caring professionals, but the focus is always the residents.
What else does LFSVA do?
Our 131-year-old organization assists vulnerable individuals at every stage of life, from placing foster children in supportive, loving homes, to teaching students with emotional and behavioral challenges, to empowering adults with disabilities. From our earliest days, we have helped develop abundant, successful lives at home, school and in the community.
