The Bridge at Northwood Civic Tuesday

Northwood Civic Association meeting is Tuesday the 15th. Michael Ogden from The Bridge will be discussing his plans for the expansion of the facility. It is important that we get plenty of feedback from residents.

Please bring a neighbor and spread the word about this important meeting. 7:00PM St. James Church at Castor and Pratt.

The Bridge includes a comprehensive continuum of services, accredited by the Joint Commission. The Bridges’ services include a residential substance abuse treatment program for 38 adolescent males, the only one in Philadelphia; an outpatient treatment program for people of all ages; a licensed private school; and the E3 Center West in West Philadelphia that helps out-of-school youth and youth returning from juvenile justice placements develop academic, vocational, and life skills.
