The Bridge Community Center

The Bridge is a cross-cultural community center that provides family support, case management, interpretation, and acculturation to Southeast Asian refugee families and their descendants.

The BRIDGE mission is to build bridges of understanding and friendship between individuals and families from different backgrounds, help them to learn about and from each other, and assist them in developing strong help networks in their neighborhood and a sense of pride and unity in their community.

Though our primary focus is on the Southeast Asian community, we do not turn away anyone because of race, creed or ethnicity.
