JAZZ BRIDGE PROJECT INC
February 28, 2011
Being a musician myself, I can relate to the need for a helping hand when times get tough. And Jazz Bridge is just that hand that so many of us need. In addition to showcasing all the great jazz talent that exists in Philadelphia, I've seen Jazz Bridge help people receive medical care, find housing,pay for their housing, book gigs, anything and everything they need, so they can keep doing what they do best-make music. I've never seen anyone as selfless or dedicated as Suzanne Cloud and Wendy Simon. Almost every moment of their day is spent working to help others in need , and they are still working to help more and more people.
I personally was helped by them to see a doctor about my Bi-polar disorder, which was keeping me from going to school, or holding down a steady job. They personally found me a doctor, a therapist, and a place to stay so that I could get my life headed in the right direction. If it wasn't for the help of Jazz Bridge I know I'd be in a much worse of place than I am now. Thanks Jazz Bridge!
