You never know when you need a helping hand. They have helped me in ways, I can never imagine or thank them enough. From advice to helping me stay on my feet with dignity. One of the most caring, unselfish group of individuals you would ever want to meet. Even if they can't assist, they have the knowledge and resources to make your situation less dire. I hope Jazz Bridge is around for many years to come. They have been my lifeline in the sea of despair.

I came to Jazz Bridge as the second generation - my mother was the first. They are NOT just about Community, but their fellow man or woman, jazz and blues artist. They have helped countless individuals in need or crisis. Whether it's a gig, assistance with a place to live, medical, mental and dental problems. Sometimes all that is needed is a kind word or some direction. Jazz Bridge has been there when no one else was. They have even been there for me, spiritually and personally. Thank you for EVERYTHING and not just the music. God Bless you 365 days of the year!

Went to a jazz concert at the local Unitarian church sponsored by Jazz
Bridge. It was a bright light in the midst of a cold, dreary winter night.
The trio was excellent and the night was wonderful. Please keep it
