Overview

The Bridge is a human service agency that provides counseling services to people facing challenges. 

 

 

Continuum services are community-based wraparound services that are designed to maintain youth within their homes and support families as the primary caregivers. This includes in-home family treatment, parent support, youth mentoring, youth and family outreach, care coordination and linkage with both formal and informal community resources and supports. The continuum will also provide long-term and short-term out-of-home care for youth who cannot be maintained safely at home (i.e., group home, pre-independent living, intensive foster care and respite).

 

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 tuition reimbursement for continuing education.
