Helping Children Navigate Life's Obstacles

Life as a child can be hard but going to school shouldn’t have to be. In addition to dealing with normal growing pains, some children have trouble making new friends, fitting in, or dealing with family matters which ultimately can affect school work and their overall ability to learn. Bridges to a New Day, nfp addresses these problems by offering free school outreach programs to local schools in our community. Our licensed counselors work directly with the students at their schools through focused group sessions.
