West End Branch & Community Center
Location: Roanoke, VA

Freedom First and the West End Center for Youth joined together to help revitalize downtown Roanoke's West End neighborhood by creating a community center with attached financial services. The design for this facility included a Freedom First branch and a covered outdoor area for the weekly farmer's market. The credit union is fully equipped with a teller and waiting area, two private offices, a break area, and toilet facilities. The remainder of the interior space includes a large entrance vestibule with a resource office, a large community room, toilet facilities, and a second large space that Leap for Food has occupied as a community kitchen.
