The Salvation Army in southeast Roanoke wants to do more to identify and assist runaway or homeless youth. Captain Monica Seiler told City Council they will open the “New Day Center” at 8th and Stewart Avenue Southeast around October 1st. Seiler said many services for vulnerable youth in Roanoke City are not coordinated very well. The New Day Center will include a mentoring component and street outreach – while offering a safe and inclusive environment.
