Bridge to Independence Day Program uses a person-centered approach to design and carry out individual service plans. These plans are created through a collaborative process between the participant and their support team to regain, maintain, and learn new skills and strategies for the job of living. Each participant’s Individualized Service Plan (ISP) is designed to reinforce rehabilitation therapies and enhance vocational, cognitive, social, and functional daily living skills.
As part of the Program participants are offered choices on a daily basis with a focus on personal measurable goal setting in the areas of: Wellness, Independent Living, Vocational Skills and Social Support.
Another key to the success of our program is our use of Peer Mentoring, in which participants receive acceptance and understanding from both peers and staff—consistently leading to personal progress. Bridge to Independence is a place where members can be empowered, motivated, and encouraged as they continue healing.
