Building place, permanence and purpose for foster youth, adoptive parents, and elders.

We work hard to make sure youth in foster care, adoptive families, and elders are thriving.

Cycle of Instability and Isolation


We interrupt the cycle of instablity and isolation.

Bridge Meadows builds intentional intergenerational living communities that bring youth formerly in foster care, their adoptive families, and elders together.

Kids enjoy stable homes. Parents receive support and guidance. Elders find the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families and children. And we help create strength and self-reliance with family and community services that address each generation’s unique needs.

We change lives together,
one day at a time. 

At Bridge Meadows, individual challenges become collective opportunity and growth. Every day, our three-generation community proves what's possible when we lean in together to create a web of support that lifts us all up.
