BRIDGES is proud to be a United Way of the Mid-South Driving the Dream partner.

Driving The Dream (DTD) envisions a Mid‐South in which all people have equitable access to resources and supports needed to achieve their hopes and dreams by fostering a community where the people we serve are hopeful, resilient, and self‐sufficient.

DTD is leading a movement. Together with our partners, we are building the infrastructure to bridge across service silos and tear down systemic barriers that have prevented equitable access to resources for all Memphis families. By aligning resources in a manner that unites local agencies in a “no wrong door” collaborative effort, our collective goal is to improve education, financial stability and public health in our local economy by reducing poverty, one person at a time.
