What our students are saying
"Without Bridges I would be nothing that I am today. And every single one of you have impacted me in such a way that is incomprehensible. I never thought I could become someone who felt so loved."
“Bridges gave me a place to become who I’ve always wanted to be. It’s like I was in a box and Bridges was the key to unleashing the success I held inside. I would not be who I am today if it was not for Bridges.”
"Bridges has changed my life completely. Without it, I’m positive I wouldn’t have been so successful in all aspects of my life. It’s my biggest motivation I’ve ever had because it finally gave me someone who I wanted to be proud of me. It finally gave me a family I could share my achievements with."
"Bridges to a Brighter Future gave me purpose when I felt like I had none. Honestly, it saved me from the horrible possibility of becoming addicted to drugs like my parents when they were my age. I could ramble on all day about what Bridges has done for me, but the only thing that’ll truly display that is my future, so watch. My future is ever brighter now that Bridges came to be my light when my world was dark."
"You are the best family I've ever had."
"I would not be the person I am today without all of you!"
Our 10-year data shows that Bridges scholars exceed state and national statistics for comparable populations. Our scholars set a path for their futures, and we help them find success!
