PALS (Providing a Link for Survivors)

is BISSWVA’s newest program, pairing a volunteer and a brain injury survivor for socialization and natural support…and maybe even a friendship! 

about the program

Volunteers will provide companionship and socialization to a brain injury survivor through weekly contact and monthly get-togethers.  Scheduling is flexible, and volunteer training is provided.
Volunteers and survivors engage in a naturally supportive relationship for 12-months...or until they develop a natural friendship.
Are you willing to make a new friend?
If yes...


Interested Consumers should contact their Case Manager or Pediatric & Volunteer Outreach Manager for referral information.
