At Bridges Homeward, we advocate for children, teens, and families. We help the people we serve develop healthy, permanent relationships and make sure they are living in stable, safe, and loving homes. As a result, they can build the resilience and power they need to advocate for themselves. For us, permanency is not distinct from anything we do. It is everything we do.
Six different programs. One big family.
Today, Bridges Homeward operates six different programs, each with its own permanency-focused services. We don’t offer quick fixes; we take a much more in-depth and personalized approach. Sometimes, permanency in our work means making sure a child can remain with their biological family; sometimes it means ensuring someone with a developmental disability can live with family instead of having to move to an institutional setting; and sometimes it means finding a child in foster care a forever family. Our list of success stories is over 145 years long.
