As part of the University’s Sesquicentennial celebration, the George Warren Brown School of Social Work is honoring six agencies through the Community Connections Project from 4-5:30 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Brown Hall Lounge.
GWB selected Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments, Family Resource Center, Father’s Support Center, Justine Petersen Housing and Reinvestment Corporation, Provident Counseling, and Women’s Support and Community Services to be honored.
“I think this is a wonderful selection of agencies,” said GWB alumna Sue Stepleton, a member of the GWB Task Force on the Washington University Sesquicentennial and chair of the Dean’s Professional Advisory Committee for GWB. “In addition to being well respected in their fields, these agencies show the diversity of practice that GWB teaches.”
Items exhibiting the historical link between the agencies and GWB will be on display during the event.
“This project demonstrates how strong human services have evolved out of partnerships with GWB and Washington University,” said alumnus Jeff Bassin, member and immediate past president of the GWB Alumni Board. “It is impressive how GWB and the community are connected. Hopefully, this project will help foster continuing partnerships.”
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 935-6620.
