Our mission is to strengthen our diverse community through innovative human services.
Since 1977, Community Bridges has been a catalyst for a brighter future by opening doors, offering hope and providing a hand up to the people of Santa Cruz County.
We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world: redwood forests, a marine sanctuary, and thriving farmlands. But even in paradise, there is struggle.
At Community Bridges, we pride ourselves on providing the resources that lead to positive change in peoples’ lives.
Our family of ten vital programs, across 20 different sites, meets the needs of 27,000 local children, families, and seniors each year. While each program is remarkable on its own, brought together… we are unstoppable.
Every day, we work collaboratively to build the safety net in our community and discover solutions to emerging issues. Our programs empower seniors to live with independence and dignity, increase access to medical care and good nutrition, prevent child abuse through parent education, and work to close the academic achievement gap.
With your compassionate investment of money or time, you can join us in this important mission that touches every part of our community.
