To ensure the health and safety of our participants and staff, BRIDGES is initiating a temporary suspension of program activities and in-person gatherings from March 13 through March 30, 2020. This was a difficult decision to make, but because of national developments and rapidly changing conditions regarding the spread of COVID-19, BRIDGES leadership feels this is the most responsible action.

We have not seen any indication of illness among our staff at this time; however, we are practicing caution and continuing to follow health protocols recommended by the CDC, Tennessee Health Department and Shelby County Health Department.

Building bridges means bringing people together, but it also means taking care of each other. BRIDGES staff remain available to answer questions and address concerns via email and phone, and we will provide timely updates via social media and our website. 

We will update our response in accordance with health information and communicate changes as they occur.
