Bridge Meadows - 2015 Programs of Distinction Designee

Bridge Meadows is an intentional intergenerational housing community in North Portland. 

Serving foster youth, adoptive parents, and low­‐income elders, Bridge Meadows cultivates permanence and family resilience through integrated onsite support services and therapeutic interventions. 

Children move from the instability of foster care placements to permanent homes and families. Adoptive families receive essential guidance and social support. 

Low‐income elders combat the deleterious health effects of social isolation by volunteering 100 hours/quarter in the community. 

Together, our three generations of residents transform individual vulnerability into collective strength, creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
