How it began
In 2011, Bridges established the Coalition of Services bringing together more than 25 medical and social service agencies to caravan with Bridges to various neighborhoods in Newark. Our goal at St. John’s is to refocus the mobile services provided by the Coalition of Services to our permanent site at St. John’s.
