Help us spread the word about our Community Services Center in Green Valley!

The Bridges team recently canvassed local neighborhoods in South Arlington, including the Fort Henry community, to inform local families of Bridges to Independence and the services we offer at our Community Services Center in Green Valley. One of the ways we serve the community is by delivering meals straight to the doors of our elders with the help of our awesome volunteers.

Help us make an impact and share the good we do!
