Bridges is a special project which is funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development / Residents Opportunity for Self-Sufficiency (HUD-ROSS). This project brings the professional skills of Service Coordinators to assist persons with disabilities and the elderly who live in select Public Housing Authorities.
For residents who experience the isolation of living alone or are hampered by disability or infirmity, Bridges' Service Coordinators provide invaluable services which help eligible residents maintain successful independent living. Services may vary from a personal check-in visit to intensive case management in order to overcome challenges which threaten independence.
By harnessing community resources, the Service Coordinators encourage residents to access pathways to recreational and educational opportunities, independence and full inclusion within their communities. Residents with disabilities and the elderly are supported to age-in place with dignity and comfort.
