About Bridge Disability Ministries
12356 Northup Way, Suite 103, Bellevue, WA 98005, US
Because Bridge Disability Ministries honors the God-given dignity and giftedness of people living with disabilities, we build relationships to alleviate isolation and enrich our churches and community.
MEETING THE NEEDS....What Bridge Disability Ministries does to assist people living with physical and/or developmental disabilities, their family or care givers, services may include:
Spiritual Connections - staff and volunteers in partnership with local churches and other community groups provide social activities, support groups meetngs and retreats for adults living with developmental & physical disabilities. These programs facilitate spiritual companionship and supportive relationships contributing to a sense of belonging and encouragement.
Mobility Medical Equipment - Through the efforts of a dedicated team of staff, volunteers, and caring members of the community who donate mobility medical equipment items such as wheelchairs and walkers, we are able to provide refurbished equipment to people in need regardless of ability to pay.
Guardianship Services - Bridge serves as legal guardian for 38 people, who have developmental disabilities, little or no support from family, and limited financial resources. This loving oversight enables them to live in the community rather than being institutionalized, and ensures quality of life.
Bridge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry supported by contributions from individuals, churches, businesses, grantors, service groups, and special fund-raisers. We are ecumenical and welcome people of all faith and philosophical persuasions to participate in our programs.
We'll work with your schedule.
