Our employees from Bridges US are excited to embrace the holiday season! Last Friday, they came together to decorate stockings and to spread good cheer! #BridgesCaresToday's #BridgesCares story is about giving back to your community and making a difference. It was a fun-filled day as @BridgesofIndiana staff attended the Kindness Act awards at @HoosierPrairie Elementary! 
The first recipients of the Kindness Act awards from Hoosier Prarie went to the Halstead brothers who raised $500 for the school's backpack program. Bridges of Indiana matched their donation and we couldn't be more proud to show our support. 
It just goes to show that one kind action leads to another! #bethekindkid #BridgesCares #wearitwednesday

20181212_142027 dot jpgThis week's story of #BridgesCares is brought to you by Bridges of Wyoming! Cliff has made such huge strides in his health. Since coming to Bridges he has lost a whopping 56 pounds! Cliff and his staff Aaron and Terri work very hard on helping Cliff to learn proper nutrition and portion control. Cliff's team including his Case Manager and Guardian are so very proud of him for all of his hard work and making such a great lifestyle change. We even received a call from his Doctor that has seen Cliff for the last five years and stated that he has never seen Cliff in such a healthy state. He was very impressed with how well the staff have helped Cliff, and with how much Cliff has made this positive change. Cliff very excited to continue with his health journey. Great job Cliff! we are very proud of you!A friendly reminder this holiday season! 📷: @thesundaychapterThis week's #BridgesCares story is brought to you by Bridges Autism Therapies. Last week, we had Farmer Joe and his big blue tractor visit our center in Evansville! Why you may wonder? Because one of our littles went on the potty 100% independently! Famer Joe let us climb up inside the tractor, turn the wheels, and rev the engine. Thank you, Farmer Joe! #BridgesCares #BridgesAutismTherapies #EvansvilleDo you follow us on #Twitter?
