Trust House

A volunteer is a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking or a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.The word comes from Latin, and can be translated as “will” (as in doing something out of ones own free will).I am proud to work with Trust House, a a non-profit organization serving people in crisis in the Roanoke Valley.  Trust House’s mission is simple, to provide stabilization and growth to homeless individuals and families in crisis. The work this organization does in the community is invaluable.I serve on the Board and volunteer because I believe in the organizations mission and because they are committed to making a difference in the Roanoke Valley and Southwest Virginia.Below you will find more information on Trust House and the programs offered.We Are Trust:Trust House provides emergency and transitional housing to homeless individuals and families with emphasis on case management, life skills education and financial independence. These services are provided in a safe, confidential and home-structured environment where people can recover from crises, move toward greater self-sufficiency and move on to permanent housing. The core values of Trust House are:

  • Confidentiality
  • Safety
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Self-Sufficiency

Trust House aims to honor all people where they are, explore their possibilities for growth, and support them on their way back to independence.Shelter:Trust House is an emergency and transitional housing program that encourages growth and change for homeless individuals and families.Trust House believes that as people are supported and taught life skills, they become self-sufficient and can leave the cycle of homelessness and crisis. Most Trust House participants move into long term or permanent housing.Our case management team provides one-to-one guidance; makes referrals to community resources; and, works with residents to develop action plans that lead to independence. Our end goal is permanent housing. However, meeting the objectives of training people in life skills and linking participants with services ensure that residents are prepared to live independently once permanent housing is found. Trust House accepts calls for referrals until 12:00 noon and after 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Calls are accepted all day and night on Saturday and Sunday.

  1. I’d love to help you with your fund-raising activities and have some ideas that I’d like to discuss with you. Let’s schedule some time to sit and talk. This is an awesome program and I’d like to be involved in some way. Thanks John!

    You and I have had several conversations about this organization as well as others. It is very important to give back what is so freely given to us. Volunteering makes me a better person.

    Might I make a suggestion? Consider setting up a PayPal account and accept donations online. It’s worked for many an organization I have worked with, from a dog rescue (who has received $1,000s from people all over the world) to a local foodshelf.
