Renovation Alliance works to eliminate substandard housing and preserve affordable homeownership by engaging volunteers and community partners to provide free critical home repairs for area homeowners in need. Throughout the year, we bring together more than 1,400 skilled and non-professional volunteers on project worksites across the Roanoke Valley to rebuild homes. In 2018, we repaired the homes of 132 low-income homeowners and in 2019 we are on track to complete even more! After 20 years we are still going strong and have so many more families to help this Spring!
About our program:
All repair services are provided free of charge to those in need thanks to our volunteers and generous donors. The goal of our program is to rebuild warm, safe, dry, accessible, energy efficient, and healthy homes the cities of Roanoke and Salem and the counties of Roanoke, Botetourt, Craig, Floyd, and Franklin. Our program focuses on the critical and necessary home repair needs of homeowners who are elderly, living with a disability, a veteran or surviving spouse, and families caring for young children.

Joseph, a veteran and Purple Heart recipient, is struggling to maintain his home and keep it safe for his family. He is diagnosed with three forms of cancer and does not know how long he will live. His wife of more than 40 years is an amputee and desperately needs a ramp. Joseph wants to make sure that she is comfortable and safe before he passes. This spring, volunteers from the Military Officer's Association of America, the West Point Society of Southwest Virginia, and the Stonewall Jackson Chapter of the Association of the U.S. Army, are set to install a brand new ramp for these homeowners so that Joseph can rest assured that his wife will be able to safely enter and exit their home.

Her husband passed years ago and she struggles to make ends meet and maintain the family home where she wants to stay for years to come. On April 27th, volunteers from Freedom First Federal Credit Union will make the repairs necessary for Pamela to sit on her porch and enjoy her view for many years to come.
