Bridge to Independence Day Program is a day support activity program for adults with acquired brain injury or cognitive impairment. Our program is certified by the State of Oregon and serves the Metro Portland, Oregon area.

Program facility is located in a peaceful country setting.
A brain injury takes something away from each person whose life it touches—forever changing their life. It often causes those with the injury to feel “less than”, frustrated, angry, and even depressed or alone. An individual with a brain injury often struggles with the challenge of feeling “different”.
Bridge to Independence exists to support each participant’s growth, improvement, and progress in their independence and community integration. We work daily to help them create a life of higher quality with more joy and meaning. As one of our members recently stated, “This is the place I get my support—where people really understand and care about me.” At Bridge to Independence, life is not about being different; it’s about making a difference and giving each member the power to do just that.
