See A Smile, Make A Smile

"I need to focus on myself before I help anyone else."

The volunteering you do at Bridges Outreach doesn't just benefit a population who needs it - it helps YOU too. 

Research has shown that through volunteering, the brain releases more dopamine. Through even just one hour of volunteering and spending time in service of others, you can reduce your feelings of stress AND increase positive, relaxed feelings. 

We here at Bridges believe the work we do should benefit everyone: the clients we serve, the staff we employ, the communities we benefit, and every single person we come across.

A Sight to See

Make Yourself Feel Better Too.
