BCW offers unique opportunities to visit homes of older adults in the community of Norfolk. In collaboration with the Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, BCW provides the organizational structure, resources, and continuity of care to foster and support the development of rich and meaningful relationships between student volunteers and older adults.
