Community Bridges is an essential organization in Santa Cruz County and runs ten amazing programs, serving infants through seniors. I have several elderly neighbors who were having difficulty getting to the store or the doctor. I helped them apply to the Lift Line program, so they could get meals and rides. Another senior friend of mine was ill and unable to prepare his meals, and I helped him apply to Meals on Wheels. His Meals on Wheels drivers have become his friends and check up on him on a regular basis. The Elderday program has been a godsend for friends with elderly parents with Alzheimer. At Elderday, their parents are well cared for, while my friends work. Community Bridges runs several community centers at Beach Flats, Mountain Community, La Manzana, Familia Center and Live Oak. As a parent, I was able to take crucial parenting classes at the Live Oak center. These classes were invaluable to families and have provided education classes to new moms and other services. Community Bridges acts as a lifeline to those who are most vulnerable by providing food and nutrition counseling to daycare providers of children and seniors, as well as, mothers and infants. Community Bridges provides a safety net for the people of Santa Cruz County, making our community healthier. You would be hard pressed to find someone, in Santa Cruz County, who has not been helped by this organization, or knows someone who has been helped by Community Bridges.
