Improving Access; Enhancing Quality of Life for People with Disabilities
What is CDPA?
BRIDGES Consumer Directed Personal Assistance
BRIDGES CDPA Program improves quality of life for people with disabilities and older adults who require personal assistance at home. It allows those in need of personal assistance to hire their own caregivers and direct their own care. CDPA gives people independence within the community.
BRIDGES serves as the Fiscal Intermediary (FI) and provides benefits and payroll administration for each individual self-directed employer.
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.
