The Bridge is a human service agency that provides counseling services to people facing challenges. This Department of Developmental Disabilities-funded supported housing program provides services to developmentally disabled adults living in apartments in the Metro-West area, including Westboro, Hudson, and Marlboro. These individuals have been diagnosed with intellectual disabilities, mental health issues, and/or substance abuse. The intensity of services is tailored to the individuals’ changing needs. The focus of the service is community inclusion and participation.
The Bridge provides excellent supervision (both individual and group), as well as various trainings in which to obtain CEU’s, and opportunities for advancement. The Bridge is an eligible employer for the Public Student Loan Forgiveness Program and provides some tuition reimbursement for continuing education.
Supported Housing Counselors act as Community Case Managers, who are responsible for providing support services, transportation of individuals, medication administration, and service documentation as required. Supported Housing Counselors also provide crisis counseling to all individuals as needed and maintain an assigned caseload.
