Last summer, we shared the important strategic decision to shift from being a broad end-of-life advocate to become a grief-focused organization (read the full announcement here.) So, with our new mission in place to focus on the needs of children, teens, & their families grieving a death, we are now pleased to debut our new name:
Bridges for End-of-Life is becoming….
Bridges of Hope
New Mission Statement:
Bridges provides a safe group environment to support & empower children, teens & their families grieving a death.
We believe that this new name both honors where we have been as well as where we are headed; it includes a metaphor for the journey of grief as bridge-building; of crossing a divide. It also highlights our ambition to help children, teens & families reclaim the hope to put one foot in front of the other; the hope that gives life meaning.
So, thank you for being a bridge-builder! During this challenging time grief support is more important than ever, so we look forward to partnering with you as we endeavor together to serve & grow in creative and transformative ways.
