Nursing School Students Volunteer at Walter Hoving Home
Summer break doesn’t pre-empt serving for Nyack College students. In fact, you’ll find a growing number of our nursing students volunteering monthly at the Walter Hoving Home in Garrison, New York as a part of their community health experience.
After volunteering at the Home herself, Nursing School Dean Elizabeth Simon, recognized this opportunity as a great learning experience for her students and soon worked on an affiliation agreement. Dr. Simon recently took students (pictured above) Natasha Hines and Melissa Moore with her to provide general examinations for the residents of the Home.
For nearly 50 years the Walter Hoving Home, funded by private tax-deductible donations, has provided shelter, food, a work program, and a course of study that offers life skills in a faith-based environment. Three all-female facilities located in New York, California, and Nevada, help restore lives that were nearly destroyed by substance abuse, prostitution, and other oppressive circumstances. It is named after the major benefactor who helped establish the Home, the former CEO of Tiffany & Company.
