“Are you safe?” It is how we answer the phone, and it is the lens through which we provide support. For more than 40 years, the staff and volunteers of the WRC have been providing crisis intervention, responding with trauma-informed care, and working towards a safer New River Valley. While recognizing the lingering effects of COVID-19, The Women’s Resource Center continues to provide free, confidential, and safety-centered services to victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence in the New River Valley. We serve 3-4,000 people per year through our various programs and services. It is essential to our organization that services remain free and available 24/7 here in the NRV.

Mayapple School is a non-profit preschool, unique in that its curriculum consists primarily of outdoor learning. Mayapple preschoolers and teachers aren't deterred by the weather. Melissa West, founder and headteacher, uses it to the advantage of learning. And, she's known to stomp in the mud puddles with the students. Mayapple has grown and wants to accommodate more students. Their plan for a forever home is in the works. The board has sought counsel from Early Education Business Consultants, https://www.earlyeducationbusiness.com/, to guide them through financial responsibility in their growth process. Their dream for a place with a forest, a stream, and within 20 miles of Blacksburg is lofty but doable. Please read about the school at

Calfee Community & Cultural Center is still in its embryonic stage. The building needs major renovation and new equipment before any of the programs can begin. But there are going to be great things coming out of the vision and planning for the historic school building for community enrichment and cultural and historic preservation and presentation. It is an exciting time to be a part of the CCCC startup! The website address is https://calfeeccc.org/, and we hope that many of our members take a few minutes to check it out, especially the short video here describing the CCCC as many envision it and are working toward its coming on stream in another year or so.
