Bridges to Faith
A collaborative whose mission is to provide opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities and the faith communities who welcome them in the New Bedford, Massachusetts area. Bridges to Faith focuses on identifying persons with developmental disabilities who wish to participate in local faith communities as well as to identify members of congregations who wish to offer support by serving as Faith Companions. The goal is to insure that individuals are offered opportunities to explore their spirituality and to enrich the lives of the congregations who welcome them. Since its inception the faith companionships which have been formed have blessed profoundly the lives of all concerned.
