Dorothy Garwood


HOUSING MANAGER and MSW Practicum Student for BCVC Mentor Program

I have been the wife of a USMC Veteran for the last 20 years, so I hold the Veteran community close to my heart. I was offered an opportunity to intern within the Housing Department at Columbia Basin Veteran Center in 2019 housing homeless Veterans. While earning my Bachelor’s in Social Work degree, I realized just how much I loved working with Veterans and for Veterans. I am now in the process of earning a Master’s in Social Work degree and hope to secure a practicum with CBVC within the Veteran Court Mentorship Department. I was offered and now hold a full time position at CBVC as the Housing Manager.
