Our work relies heavily on our community partners who volunteer their time and resources to “Make Change Happen”. Healthy Roanoke Valley provides an on-going forum for almost 160 volunteer members to step outside organizational boundaries and share leadership, expertise, and resources to activate a common set of shared goals for community improvement in an environment that offers mutual respect, trust and understanding while nurturing collaborative relationships. Our partners are a diverse group of cross-sector stakeholders representing health, education, housing, safety, income, government and access to healthy foods and physical activity.
Healthy Roanoke Valley is closely aligned with the Partnership for a Liveable Roanoke Valley, a program of the Roanoke-Alleghany Regional Commission. The Partnership created the “Liveable Roanoke Valley” plan to promote economic opportunity and quality of life in the Roanoke Valley and adopted Healthy Roanoke Valley’s strategies in their regional approach to health.
Since October 2012, volunteers have provided over 5,012 hours of service valued at $115,321.
