Our event planning company has helped the Bridge organization plan multiple fund raising banquets. We have worked with the majority of their staff at some point in the process and can honestly say they are the most hard-working, passionate, devoted group of people. They care deeply about the work they do and the service they provide to their clientele.

I've heard the testimonies and met individuals they serve. It's clear that their services are vital.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See that they got more funding.

Bridge Disability Ministries is working to bridge the gap between people living with disabilities and faith communities, a very important function in our community. In this fashion they combat the isolation that often exists in the lives of people who are 'different'. This organization is unique in the quality, scope and 'faith focus' of their work.

I began my association with Bridge as a parent raising a child who lives with autism. We had yet to connect with an accepting and welcoming church although my son was 13. When I heard of Bridge Disability Ministries, I contacted them out of curiosity & was invited to bring my son to a summer carnival they were planning in the near future. We did attend & had a conversation with the Executive Director Jack Staudt who connected me with a welcoming church a short distance from our home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more support so they can reach greater numbers of people living with disabilities in the Puget Sound area.
