Community Outreach

Woven into BRC’s DNA is a sincere concern for the welfare of our entire community. Our residents come first of course, but we also care deeply about the world beyond our campus.

We are proud to be an active and contributing member of the greater community—in fact that is one reason many residents choose BRC. We have a particular commitment to partnering with other nonprofits to tackle barriers to healthy aging.

Call on BRC Experts Speakers Bureau

Does your civic club or community organization need a speaker for a meeting? BRC team members have expertise on a variety of topics related to aging, retirement, and cultivating the many dimensions of wellness at any age. Contact the BRC Foundation at or 540-828-2652 to find out more.

The Power of BRC Volunteers Community Connections

Each month, BRC residents and team members have the opportunity to work together on specific service projects and donation drives. Organizations and initiatives are chosen based on the interests of BRC team members and have included Open Doors, Strength in Peers, the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum, Thanksgiving Blessing Boxes, Salvation Army, Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department, Children’s Clothes Closet, John Wayland Elementary School teachers, and more.

If your organization would like our help with a specific project, let’s talk! Projects should be something that can be accomplished either on-site in a single day, or at BRC in the course of a week or so.

Community Partnerships

Through partnerships, we multiply our power to make a difference. BRC is committed to being a force for good in our greater community and is particularly committed to supporting older adults and healthy aging.

One example is our partnership with the Valley Program for Aging Services, or VPAS. Twice a month, BRC hosts a VPAS Café, a social wellness program for older adults. And once a week, we deliver Meals on Wheels in the Bridgewater area.

Our Community Outreach Fund (one priority within our stunningly successful LiveWell campaign, completed in 2022) provides some resources for BRC to partner with other nonprofits to tackle barriers to healthy, happy aging in the Shenandoah Valley.
