Day Programs



Day Services:
Day Services offers community based supports for participants by promoting an active and healthy life style and strengthening life skills through daily community experiences, contributing to their independence.

Individuals may participate in a variety of experiences in order to develop these skills. Involvement in the community through interaction and participation is a priority. Community and classroom activities are offered to teach skills needed for community integration and independence. BRIDGE believes that individuals with disabilities should have meaningful choices in their daily community activities. These choices are designed to be age and ability-appropriate and interest-driven.

Physical activities are developed and implemented with an emphasis on good sportsmanship, team spirit, and peer encouragement.

Our well-trained and experienced staff creates a caring and nurturing environment for BRIDGE clients.
