Jamie, top photos, struggled with addiction for years and was homeless before arriving at our Women’s Recovery Program, which she attributes to saving her life. “I was just lost, completely. I needed another shot, another chance – and Bridgewell gave that to me.”
Jamie and her daughter Bella now live in Bridgewell’s Affordable Housing. “Being in my own place, I’m able to function and take care of my daughter. Living here gives us the safety and security I haven’t had in as long as I can remember.”
Carlos, bottom photos, lives in a Bridgewell group residence and participates in our Employment Support program, currently working at a local pizza and sub shop, but he has had many different employment experiences over the years.
Carlos enjoys participating in Bridgewell’s track and basketball teams for Special Olympics, and he loves dancing, Halloween and attending Red Sox and Patriots games with staff.
Jamie and Carlos face very different life challenges, but both are supported through Bridgewell’s services as they work to achieve their highest quality of life. They are two of the more than 6,200 people annually who benefit from Bridgewell’s services in 23 communities across the North Shore and Merrimack Valley.
We need your help to empower more people like Jamie and Carlos to achieve their goals. At this time of giving, please consider supporting Bridgewell’s vital work. By making a gift today, you will have a profound impact on the lives of those in need and our shared community. Together, we can make a difference.
