Help Everyone in Roanoke Valley Thrive

Your donation helps more people thrive. Thank you for making our community stronger!


We are proud to have been selected as the lead organization for Ready Region West.
As a Ready Region lead organization, we are part of a statewide network focused on:


  • Strengthening quality. We will ensure all components are in place to coordinate quality measurement and guide improvement in publicly funded classrooms as part of VQB5.
  • Building relationships. We will engage with leaders across the region to facilitate buy-in for shared accountability and benefit.
  • Increasing access. We will build and strengthen better processes to help parents learn about and access Early Childhood Care & Education programs in their community, while helping ECCE providers connect with families.
  • Engaging families. We will establish and strengthen strategies and structures to ensure family engagement.
