Review for Community Bridges, Watsonville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My mother is a participant of Community Bridges' Child & Adult Care Food Program. The food nutrition knowledge that the Consultants provide to licensed childcare home providers has had a huge impact on the nutritional meals my mother serves to the children under her care. The children are served balanced meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a snack in between breakfast and lunch and in between lunch and dinner. The majority of the children under my mother's care are children of low-income family that work in agricultural so seeing the children not only be thought rich curriculum but also nutritional meals that perhaps they may not have at their home, is really rewarding.

My grandmother is a participant of Community Bridges' Lift Line Program and Community Bridges' Elderday Program. Thanks to Lift Line my grandmother is able to attend all her medical appointments and go to Elderday four times per week. The drivers are friendly and care about the well being of my mother. It is reassuring to see professional staff transport my frail grandmother. My grandmother shares with me that she exercises, sings and makes bracelets. She has four close friends and they all brag to each other about how many grandchildren they have. Elderday is so good to my grandma's heart and I as well as my family are great-full for this wonderful programs. Without Lift Line and Elderday my grandmother would most likely spend the majority of the day at home waiting for us to return from work. At Elderday we know that she is safe and being attended too and that Lift Line will transport her back to us.

There is a high demand in Santa Cruz county for the services Community Bridges provides to the community. As such, if I had to make changes to this organization, I would seek more money to help Community Bridges expand their resources to reach out to more people in our community.
