Building Bridges to the Future is an initiative program funded by the Coleman Foundation to assist families and professionals in transitioning students with developmental disabilities to the world of adult services.
Building Bridges to the Future assists students with developmental disabilities and their families. Our agencies span the entire Chicagoland area.
Six non-profit social service organizations came together, combining their expertise in serving adults and children with developmental disabilities and other special needs to form this unique partnership.
This program has been formed to serve the needs of families and professionals using a collaborative approach between:
- Pre-admission Screening Agencies (PAS)
- Prioritization of Urgency for Need Services (PUNS)
- Special Needs Trusts
- Power of Attorney
- Home and Community Based Waiver Programs
- Residential Programs
