Community IMPACT

Building Bridges

Building Bridges is not a program it's a "Southeast Iowa Initiative." It focuses on getting to know one another as we work together to create a sustainable community in which all people get to write their future stories. The key is… “We Are All In This Together”

The goals of the program are to assist families in connecting to services, programs and community resources, while striving to build community partnerships for donations and volunteer opportunities. Through their advocacy for the family, our staff can also assist with identifying basic and immediate needs of food, clothing and shelter that may be barriers to the family’s ability to engage in therapeutic services. Although it is a need for therapeutic services which brings an individual or family to Young House Family Services, we often discover that the absence of daily essentials can lead to behavior problems, isolation, social anxiety, and clinical depression. It can be difficult to engage in services when there is worry about food and shelter.
