What Is the Bridge Directory?

A user-friendly website and community where families of color can find & connect with our vetted care providers.

Our aim is to assist these families in locating a best-fit professional by selecting their healthcare & wellness needs, insurance, location and more.

We are currently accepting members from these locations: New York City, Long Island, northern New Jersey, southern Connecticut, and Westchester.

“The Bridge is more than just a resource. I’m here for the friendships and a large network of resources that I can offer to my clients who most of the time are people of color or folks living in under-served communities with limited resources. No one says it better than Adrienne Maree Brown in Emergent Strategy: ‘We are realizing that we must become the systems we need—no government, political party, or corporation is going to care for us, so we have to remember how to care for each other.’”

“Cultivating a strong sense of community and being able to empower people. There are so many different definitions of success, and I love helping people establish their own definition instead of striving towards a predetermined one.”
