Bridge Meadows is founded on the principle that a community of caring, connected and empowered individuals can heal and enrich the lives of each other. Rather than relying solely on outside services, the community itself is the form of intervention. Bridge Meadows’ staff and social service partners help guide, rather than govern the community in forming healthy, supportive relationships. This unique and cooperative neighborhood includes an intergenerational community center, library, tutoring room, computer lab, and community garden. Program services cover four specific categories: education, recreation, health & well-being, and arts & culture.
