WHO WE ARE
The Bridge Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit which began as a Rotary Club initiative..The goal was to provide a space where people could feel comfortable asking for help. Since its inception in 2016, The Bridge Project has grown to support hundreds of our community members through connecting them with individual and group support networks. Our primary work focuses on assisting at-risk individuals struggling with addiction, poverty, and other difficult life circumstances.
The Bridge Project takes a stand for what is possible—for the Lincoln-Woodstock community, for our neighbors, and for ourselves. This program isn’t about changing lives for people, but about providing the tools and unwavering support that encourage people to change themselves and their choices for the better. Through individual strategies, people-centered programming, and measurable goal-setting, community members in partnership with the Life Coach are empowered to find new and healthier possibilities for themselves and their families in mind, body, and spirit.
