We are pleased to provide our community with this report, which offers a glimpse of the work we do, and more importantly, the impact Bridges has on the individuals and the communities we serve through our fifteen programs.
Our outpatient clinics, for all ages, are the core of Bridges' service delivery system, and continue to provide transformative assistance to thousands of area residents each year. While these outpatient clinics are among the most vital services we provide in our community, they also continue to be the most at-risk, due to budget cuts from the State of Connecticut and inadequate insurance reimbursement rates. Our staff and leadership team are extremely diligent and committed to sustaining these services, and work hard to ensure our clients receive the care they need to live safe and healthy lives.
In addition to the core service offerings, we have increased our commitment to address two major issues:
Identifying and treating problems in our youth and young adult population
Saving lives by offering Medication Assisted Treatment, (MAT) for those who are experiencing opioid addiction.
You will read more about the individuals whose lives have been transformed by these critical programs in the following pages.
While we are proud of our role and our accomplishments as we work to ensure the health and well-being of our community, we know we cannot do this work without your understanding, empathy and support.
With our best wishes for a healthy 2018!
Barbara DiMauro Shaun M. Mee CEO & President Board Chairperson
