.TOP® is just one way Family Service brings mental health care and support into the community, where people

. People can start working toward their happiest, healthiest lives through therapy, treatment and support at over 30 different partner sites including schools, after school centers, adult care facilities, partner service providers, neighborhoods, community centers and more!

That’s why our friend Raggedy Andy is visiting our partners in the coming weeks–to highlight how our neighbors are able to get the help they need when and where they need it.

You can help make this possible by supporting Family Service on Roanoke Valley Gives March 15. We have a goal to raise $5,000. Click here to donate during the Power Hour of Noon-1 p.m., or anytime March 15!

Like our neighbors, who find help in arm’s reach when they need it, Raggedy Andy is out and about in the community. You never have to look far to find a smiling face and helping hand.

You never know where Raggedy Andy will show up next. You can be sure, wherever you see him is another place lives are being changed.

All thanks to the generous support of people like you. People who understand the importance of giving all families a place to turn in crisis, and all children hope for a happier, healthier future!
