I began working at Life Bridges straight out of college as a DSP in the ICF program. At that time there were mainly only children at the homes and they were even called “the Children’s homes”. I came to Cleveland to go to Lee and felt called by God into children’s ministry. Through my time at school I quickly realized it was not a typical calling of being a children’s pastor at a church somewhere. When I landed at Life Bridges (Bradley Cleveland Services at that time) it was by chance just seeing a job offering in the paper and it fit with my schedule. I had no clue what type of work or “calling” the Lord was leading me to. I 100% believe I came at a time working with actual children because God wanted to show me this was my purpose to work with others who may not always be the physical age of a child, but people who have a pure innocence and spirit like a child does. That was 22 years ago. I have been at Life Bridges 17 of those years. Even the time I left and stayed in this field, my heart was drawn back to here because whatever position you are in here, you are still working with and for individuals with that spirit and helping them to achieve and live their life to the fullest. There is no greater reward than when you see someone accomplish something so many tell them they cannot. When you see the ability in so many, that to others they only see as a disability. Life Bridges is family, it is home!
