  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

The Bookmobile is an initiative to provide our residents with the opportunity to continue to read. Volunteers travel from unit to unit offering reading materials from our bookmobile to any resident who wishes to use them. Additionally, it provides our residents with a vital opportunity to engage in social interactions and human contact with a caring and compassionate volunteer. These experiences are critical to the social wellbeing and overall health of our residents.

All volunteers must be vaccinated for Covid-19 and complete Volunteer Orientation with Volunteer Services.

About Southwestern Veterans Center, Dept. Of Military & Veteran Affairs

Location:

7060 Highland Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15206, US

Mission Statement

To provide quality healthcare to Pennsylvania Veterans and spouses. A holistic approach guides specially trained staff in care, preventative and rehabilitative services while encouraging resident’s self-choice, well-being, and dignity.

Description

Situated less than 10 miles from downtown Pittsburgh in Allegheny County, the Southwestern Veterans’ Center (SWVC) is far enough from the city that residents can enjoy a quiet, tranquil living, but is only a short drive away from all the history, culture and entertainment a large city has to offer.

Before ever setting foot into the home visitors are greeted by an island of American flags prominently flying high at the main entrance as if they are waving and welcoming veterans and their families. The patriotic feel continues throughout the inside of the home, highlighted by a hallway lined by military photos and a Purple Heart mural in the activities room that reminds everyone that heroes live here.

Patriotic symbols are not the only way our residents are honored. SWVC provides exceptional care for its residents thanks to a professional staff -- many of whom are veterans -- who proudly come to work each day excited and are honored to take care of true American heroes. Visits to the home by current service members and from representatives of local veteran service organizations are very common and provide a constant reminder that our residents are thought about often throughout the Pittsburgh community.
