EVENT: The NO MORE Challenge
Bridges is a nonprofit organization that provides free and confidential services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, teen dating violence, child sexual abuse, elder abuse, stalking, and harassment. We provide crisis intervention, emergency shelter, court advocacy, support groups, and education and outreach to both women and men. Bridges mission is to cultivate communities free from violence as we support victims and survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking. Domestic and sexual violence affects everyone in our communities. Right now it may be happening to a family member, friend, coworker, neighbor, or parishioner. It does not discriminate based on your age, gender, race, or financial status. It may be happening to you.
Together, with the NO MORE campaign (http://nomore.org/about/), Bridges strives to make our communities a safe place to live and work. We create bridges to learning in local schools and workplaces, and bridges to healing with support groups and our confidential support line. We create bridges when we assist individuals in rebuilding their lives through our emergency shelter and community resources. You become a part of these bridges by supporting our agency and facilitating conversations with family, friends, colleagues, and peers about domestic and sexual violence. We are committed to eliminating domestic and sexual violence and providing a safe and supportive environment for victims and survivors. You are not alone. We are here to help. Bridges offers support and options to individuals who need to talk, need information, or feel alone, afraid, or hopeless.
