Bridges is Hope

Thousands of Lives Saved!

Bridges of Iowa may be a small non-profit, but we make a big difference in our community because we literally save lives! I am so proud of this mission and the fact that we are able to provide top quality, long-term drug and alcohol treatment to the highest risk and most vulnerable individuals in our community–individuals who come to us mostly from jail with little to no income, no health insurance, and virtually no access to quality treatment. Bridges doesn’t just help people get off drugs, we also provide a host of reentry services that helps them find jobs, get back on their feet, and reunite with their families. Our program has demonstrated year after year that Bridges of Iowa graduates go from being addicted and incarcerated to being vibrant, joyous, and productive members of their communities!

If it wasn’t for the generosity of others, many of our amazing success stories simply would not have happened. Whether you’re someone who has supported Bridges these past 20 years or someone new to the Bridges family, I thank you and I ask for your continued support. One way you can help is by sponsoring one of our graduation ceremonies. Or you can directly sponsor the cost of treatment for an individual to go through the most intensive and important phases of our long-term treatment program. We need your help. Our clients need your help.

I invite you to come witness for yourself the success that your contributions provide by attending one of our truly amazing graduation ceremonies. Come see firsthand the joy of reunited families. Listen to a parent say thank you for bringing their child home. Watch a little child run and leap into his parents’ arms. Seeing the light come on in someone’s eyes is an experience you don’t want to miss!
