Bridges to Health – NYC

Bridges to Health serves children and young adults with special needs (seriously emotionally disturbed, developmentally disabled, and medically fragile). Youth must be admitted while in foster care but can maintain services upon discharge until the age of 21. An array of services is provided to both the children and their families in order to keep them in the home and connected to the community.
