About this resource

bridge overview

Along with offering a variety of supportive programs, The Bridge helps connect youth to their peers, learn new skills, and find resources to reconnect with their families, schools and community. The program provides crisis shelter, counseling, case management, group support, youth activities and connections to other needed services. We also assist youth with meeting their basic needs, setting goals, building new life skills, and establishing connections with peers and mentors who can support them.
