Helping Our Community RVA's mission is to strengthen communities through programs for underprivileged families and at-risk youth needing shelter, child care, independent living services/skills, mentoring, hunger relief, environmental education, counsel, career development skills, financial support, community resources, and/or educational resources. We are a community-based organization committed to increasing positive change through structured training, support, and programs. We believe change for our community means helping all within it build their knowledge and support system. We plan to align our organization with other community organizations to support our neighborhoods' positive growth further. Helping Our Community RVA will strive to utilize programs that serve underprivileged families and at-risk youth populations, promoting participants to adopt a positive relationship with themselves, creating confidence and self-sufficiency equipping them with support to overcome life's obstacles. Our purpose is to customize sustainable strategic plans to provide program participants with lifelong knowledge and skills of lasting value.
