What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Bridge Foundation is targeted to helping Youth and their families seeking direction, support, advice and choices for integrated healing within a community environment. Strategic Partnerships are developed with local area treatment and support programs 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, and development of a support group and social network that transcends any single physical individual placement as a critical element to long-term recovery. The Bridge Center offers a new paradigm that will: • Provide a physical environment where young people can come together in fellowship and holistic community to work toward common healthy sober practices; • Foster the quest for young adults and their families to find the right balance in their lives and relationships • Enable opportunities for prevention, cure and sustainable skill dev

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our Mission is to be there as a resource, Advocate and a helping hand to young people and their families facing substance use issues and other life challenges, and to provide support and collaborative solutions for those in Recovery. We assist individuals and family members in connecting with local area housing, treatment and support providers, and community programs and events. We provide consultations and collaborative meetings, as well as referrals and direction by phone. The Bridge Foundation also provides grants to young people who need financial assistance for Recovery support and services. The Bridge seeks to meet the needs of the Individual, wherever they are in their Recovery, and provide referrals, resources and financial assistance to the young person and Family in Recovery throughout the continuum of services in a Recovery Oriented System of long term care.

The Bridge Foundation shares the three core principles of a Recovery Community Organization– recovery vision; authenticity of voice; and accountability to the recovery community. Our singular goal in providing resources, referrals, individualized support and assistance is enhancing the quantity and quality of support available to people seeking and experiencing long-term recovery from addiction and to help individuals and families get the help they need to recover, including advocating for access to effective care including treatment and peer and other recovery support services, and working collaboratively to mobilize individual and community resources to promote recovery, not a particular service or model of care. The Bridge Foundation’s focus on the needs and choices of the individual and family, without preference or direction toward any one modality or provider of support, embraces all pathways to recovery, serving both the young person and family in Recovery and the community.

The Foundation plans to solicit public support by: (1) holding fundraising events at the community center, where all profits will support the Foundation; (2) soliciting funds, services and goods from local businesses to support programs run at the community center and; (3) soliciting monetary contributions from individual donors.
We have ten years of experience in creating and supporting a community based recovery oriented continuum of care in the Philadelphia Tri-State area.
Through Fiscal Sponsorship of targeted Programs supporting transitional and recovery housing, we provide an umbrella for community recovery resources delivered through sober housing.

We are Fiscal Sponsors of Multiple Recovery Housing Organizations.
