Bridge Crossing provides a safe and loving refuge for young children ages 5-14. Our guiding vision is a commitment to help children return to their family or another home-like setting. We provide specialized treatment and education to assist them through their journey of healing and ultimately help them find their happily ever after.

Proceeds from the Run for the Children 5K ensure that children at Bridge Crossing receive the best possible care, including a more robust children’s activities program, increased education assistance, special services to families, and intensive therapies for children overcoming trauma. With over 24 years of caring for children, Bridge Crossing has a unique understanding of providing a safe, nurturing environment for children in crisis and the value of keeping families together following trauma.
