It’s easy to call a business family when it’s convenient, but what sets Life Bridges apart is the willingness to support you like family even if it means going out of their way. Every resource that Life Bridges has available goes to supporting staff and the people we support. Whether it’s medical equipment, or a vacation to Pigeon Forge, every department is ready to use their knowledge, connections, and resources to make it happen. Beyond the physical needs and wants, Life Bridges is invested in everyone connected to their agency, and wants to not only provide support for immediate needs, but also empower people to grow and succeed. I have personally had the privilege of experiencing Life Bridges dedication to growing their employees, and through my time have seen example after example of the way they apply that same philosophy to the people they support. “There is no doubt, if someone has a will, Life Bridges will find a way.”
