About the Bridge

The Bridge of Northeast Florida Inc. is a unique 501 © (3) agency whose goal is to provide the children that live in some of Jacksonville’s most crime infested, impoverished neighborhoods with the opportunities they need to overcome barriers and to support them as they aspire to better their lives.
