For many years the disabled community has been fighting for equal access to various life opportunities. BRIDGES is committed to advancing equal rights in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, so that people with disabilities have equal access to opportunities in all that life has to offer i.e. work, education, housing, healthcare, and fun!
BRIDGES was founded in 1987 under the name Rockland Independent Living Center (RILC). It is a community-based, peer-driven, cross-disability, not-for-profit organization dedicated to advocacy and leadership on behalf of people with disabilities.
