Currently recruiting Volunteers across our service area.

Providing a Link for Survivors (PALS)

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 community outings, leisure and/or recreational activities, and various social opportunities of their choosing.  Volunteers are asked to make weekly contact and participate in monthly get-togethers with their assigned survivor.  Scheduling is flexible and training is provided.
  • Volunteers and survivors engage in a naturally supportive relationship for 12 months...are you willing to make a new friend?  If yes...
  • Interested Consumers can contact their Case Manager for further information.


Come join the fun!  Volunteer with PALS!
