Bridge Eligibility

In order to provide the best environment for each individual to grow in their faith, every prospective Bridge participant must meet the following criteria. With this in mind, a case by case decision will be made based on a participant’s medical, emotional, and behavioral needs.

The criteria is as follows:
  • Does not require isolation from the rest of the population at The Bridge
  • Must not be aggressive or pose a threat to themselves, or others, or have such severe medical/emotional needs which require specialized care. (*)

(*)The Bridge ministry defines aggressive behavior as behavior that is forceful, hostile verbally/ physically.

If you would like, you can sign up to tour our Bridge area before attending, located in the Children's Education Building. Please contact Special Needs Director, Katina Yeargain to set up a time.
