The Person Supported is Our Top Priority

Innovation, Teamwork, Compassion

We believe the provision of quality support is made strong with a commitment to integrity. At every level of need, we are committed to the idea that the person supported is our top priority.

Our support is based upon high quality, ethical behavior, innovation, teamwork, and compassion. These combined core values provide the catalyst resulting in changed lives and quality of life for all people we support.

Abilities Are Our Focus Rather Than Disabilities

Live, Work, Socialize

We believe all people have the right to live, work, and socialize in their community. We believe abilities should be the primary focus rather than disabilities. We believe the people we support should have the freedom to function in an open, non-restrictive environment consistent with the rights of other people their age.

These beliefs are the impetus for promoting opportunities for all people to choose where they live, work, and with whom they develop relationships. The foundation of all we do is our desire to respect and maintain the dignity of all people.

Why We Need You

Some people need financial scholarships

Life Bridges has a waiting list of individuals needing Life Bridges support who do not have adequate financial resources to enroll. You can build a bridge and improve a life by sponsoring someone on our waiting list.

Help us upgrade our healthcare capabilities

Modern medical equipment is essential to our ability to provide essential healthcare services. Help us improve our healthcare capacity with a targeted donation.

Government funding alone cannot provide exceptional care

Increased political pressure to reduce government funding leaves us with an increasing financial shortfall that we must overcome to maintain acceptable levels of support. Help Life Bridges eliminate that gap.

Improve the life of a person

You can assist a designated person with financial support. We have comprehensive fund accounting procedures to ensure your donation is applied according to your wishes.
