The Bridges Foundation


The Bridges Foundation was founded in 1964 by a group of parents who wanted a place for their loved one’s with developmental disabilities to gain vocational training, grow life-skills, and increase independence. The mission of the Bridges Foundation quickly became to enhance the quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and our community through training, education, employment services and advocacy.

Today, the agency continues to put this mission into action by providing connections to quality job placements, supported community employment, on-the-job training, and community resources to both the clients and their families.

To achieve these aims, the EHDI NTRC provides programs and professionals with:

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network


The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) was created by Congress in 2000 as part of the Children’s Health Act to raise the standard of care and increase access to services for children and families who experience or witness traumatic events. This unique network of frontline providers, family members, researchers, and national partners is committed to changing the course of children’s lives by improving their care and moving scientific gains quickly into practice across the U.S.

Parents and caregivers play an essential role in helping children and teenagers recover from traumatic events. These resources are for parents, adoptive parents, resource/foster parents, grandparents, caregivers, and all others who care for children and teens. The more caregivers learn about how traumatic events affect their children (whether toddler, school-age, teen, youth, or adult), the more they understand the reasons for their children’s behaviors and emotions, and the better prepared they are to help them cope. When children know that caring adults are working to keep them safe and support them in understanding their reactions to trauma, most can recover and go on to live healthy and productive lives.

NCTSN provides resources for families and caregivers
