Bridges to Health

Every parent needs a partner. You may be on your own, but you’re not alone.

Bridges to Health is a program for children in foster care. It’s specifically designed for kids with complex medical, developmental, or mental health issues. We offer support services that begin while your child is still in foster care, and we continue that support after your child returns home. Our goal is to keep your child in your home and in your community by helping you manage his or her health conditions.
