Campus and Community-Based Recovery Support
The Bridge Foundation works directly with High School, College and University Administrators, Alumni, Parents and Students to bring supportive programming, Residential Recovery Communities, Collegiate Recovery Programs, Alternative Peer Groups, Sober housing and systems for prevention, early intervention, and support for young people and students who use, abuse or are dependent upon Alcohol or other Drugs, or who are in Recovery. We seek innovative, collaborative, community-based solutions to substance abuse issues facing adolescents and young adults.
The Bridge Foundation works closely with Community-Based Philanthropic and Educational Organizations to provide a collaborative approach to combating substance abuse and addiction in adolescents and young adults, partnering with others in the community to provide Programming and Systems Reform in local Communities, Universities and other Educational and Government institutions.
The Foundation’s target group consists primarily of individuals between the ages of 16 and 26 and their families, including individuals who are in recovery or struggling with self-destructive behavior, and those not meeting their goals within the current educational institutions or workforce.
The Bridge Foundation is targeted to promoting direction, support, advice and education for integrated healing within a community environment, with particular emphasis on the High School and College Communities. Strategic Partnerships are developed with local area treatment and support programs, educational, philanthropic, and community service organizations working in a collaborative Model. Areas of priority for funding include Transitional Housing, Coordination of Housing availability with Community Service Projects, Education-Based Prevention and Intervention, and development of a support group and social network that transcends any single physical individual placement as a critical element to long-term recovery.
