Modest Town Reviews

2 reviews
I moved to Modest Town Virginia in August of 2016. Our moving day went very different than how we expected it to be. We had neighbors coming over to help move furniture inside, bringing us homemade dishes, and many more things. It has been a blessing to live in this town with such welcoming people. To this day, my family and I are still in contact with our neighbors and we have each other's back.

There are many families and friends that are homeless we need to come together in one community at a time to better understand the importance of building up brains and not institutions. One day at a time.
