Meet Erika Jones

Haven Support Specialist

Erika was born in Oakland, California, but relocated early on to Southwestern Virginia as her family came to the states to farm. The first US born citizen on her mother’s side of the family, Erika grew up a hybrid between Franklin County and the Roanoke Valley. Erika is a graduate of Roanoke College, where she obtained a degree in both Psychology and Criminal Justice with a concentration in Legal Studies. Erika has been an advocate in the mental health community for almost 20 years, serving various populations including running Psychosocial Rehabilitation programs, providing adults with one-on-one care, teaching independent living skills, and working in both the public and private school systems. Erika was previously a qualified mental health professional and enjoyed working one on one with children to help them learn appropriate coping skills for dealing with everyday life stressors.  Erika has a passion for food and gardening and has recently used her skills to assist various food trucks in the area with gaining ground, while also supporting overall community health.  She gives away plants to teach people how to grow their own food and offers free or discounted organic produce to SWVA throughout the summer and fall. She currently runs the Roanoke Food Truck Finder page on Facebook which is a free tool for food trucks to promote their services while also allowing venues to locate mobile food vendors for their events. Erika has been an advocate for small businesses and nonprofits for decades and continues to devote her time to helping others reach their goals.  She recently launched her own business, SociaRae Inc., which allows her to combine her love for the community, food, socialization, mental health and empowerment. After having her first daughter, she found the benefits of meeting with other moms to discuss struggles, wins and resolutions for how to work through daily stressors. Erika is a huge believer in the Mom village and is always helping moms in need find supplies and resources to make life a little easier. Her mom village was crucial during COVID and continues to be an integral part of her life.   She believes that we are all better, together.  Erika is now the mother of two amazing daughters, dog mom to two rescues: Buddy Love and Miley, and partner to her amazingly supportive other half, Jeff.
