So, what is Bridges Summit County? Is it an organization, or something else?
Summit Bridges is a collaborative effort that includes lots of organizations who are promoting a common approach to breaking cycles of multi-generational poverty. Structurally, United Way serves as fiscal agent and Done Ceja and Nichole Booker on United Way’s community impact staff dove in all the way and have helped provide leadership. There is an advisory council of organizations that set direction and activities, and meet regularly to develop and align efforts under the umbrella of Bridges.
