Bridge Builder Project


In 2009, individuals with disabilities and their families in LOV Inc. worked together to identify a major barrier to creating fulfilling, community-centered lives. They realized they needed someone to help build a bridge into community life. Based on a desire to be valued members of a community marked by self-direction, independence, and meaningful relationships, the Bridge Builder Project was established.

Description of Services

Individuals with disabilities work one-on-one with Bridge Builder Project staff, known as Bridge Builders. Bridge Builders are paid staff who support individuals to identify personal interests, set goals, and make lasting, natural connections in community settings.The Bridge Builder Project is a unique way of receiving support. Since we began the original Bridge Builder Project in 2009, we have seen some truly amazing successes for adult project members. We are expanding, and the Bridge Builder Project is now designed also to support young adults in upper high school and community transition programs to prepare for the transition to adulthood
