Bridges is a catalyst for change

We provide initiatives that offer resource building at three levels: Individual, Institution, and Community. Take a look at what Bridges offers.

Getting Ahead

Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin' By World is a 50 hour curriculum that provides under-resourced people to investigate and understand the conditions that drives poverty.

Greg admits that he was uncertain about the program at first.

"I joined [Getting Ahead] because my fiancé wanted me to and then after we started going it turned about to be a pretty good class. I was thankful I took the class more than anything..."

In all that Tiffany has accomplished and lived through, she gives credit to Bridges.

"I think Bridges helps build that gap of positive energy, so when you have the right mindset to want to do better...you will do better; you will succeed if you continue to have a goal in mind."

Diane recommends taking Getting Ahead

"If you want to change your life, change your thinking, do something different, get back on track, have a wholesome life... Go see."
