Lester Leo Roloff was an American fundamental Independent Baptist preacher, and founder of teen homes across the south. On this wiki they are known as the Roloff Homes

He was born in 1914 and died 1982 as result of a plane crash.

In his late years he had a legal dispute with the State of Texas, which wanted to inspect the Roloff homes to ensure the safety of the minors in the group homes. At a point his organization removed the children out of Texas so they could not be interviewed. It is known as the Christian Alamo
