Bridge Ministries is unique in that it provides services AND spiritual support to persons suffering from both physical and developmental disabilities. The staff is very caring and many have personal experiences in the areas they serve in the organization, having friends and family meeting the everyday challenges of these conditions. Bridge offers legal guardianship services by certified guardians, free mobility medical equipment to those who often can't afford to purchase it, and large and small group meetings and events to help people deal and get relief from the isolation they often feel.

Try to find more ways to educate the public and be sensitive and caring towards people with disabilities and to be willing to support the cause of this organization through volunteering and/or financial gifts

I began my association with Bridge Ministries several years ago by volunteering at a Sunday Evening Celebration at my church. There I witnessed the joy of relationship with persons with disabilities. As my relationship wtih Bridge has grown, I've further witnessed the transformation of lives that occurs when barriers are broken down. The work that Bridge Ministries performs is truly transformational in a God-sized way. Through its ministries Bridge helps to change lives, to overcome isolation, to provide mobility to those confined, to celebrate the giftedness of persons with disabilities, to protect the vulnerable, to provide spiritual care and comfort, to educate society and much more.
