ABOUT THE BRIDGE
- Relationships that
- Inspire one another,
- Develop mutual trust,
- Guided by family voice & choice, and that
- Establish equitable partnerships
By centering family voice and choice, the BRIDGE network serves as a catalyst for families to define, develop, and access culturally-responsive services throughout the Omaha Metro Community.
Answering the Call for Action
The voice of families asking for a better way to access community support led to the creation of The BRIDGE Family Resource Connector Network.
Omaha area school districts, local government, community nonprofit organizations, and service providers coordinated their efforts and established The BRIDGE as a 501(c)(3) organization.
The first place-based Family Resource Centers launch, providing navigators to both East and West Omaha.
Douglas County Community Response Collaborative (DCCR) transitioned to The BRIDGE. This allows the Collaborative to evolve from a virtual resource to a network of place-based resources.
