A new organization is helping connect people in need with community members who can fulfill those needs. Worthington Neighborhood Bridges is an online platform where advocates post needs on behalf of individuals, whose identities are kept confidential, and either partner agencies or individuals step up to meet the need.
Worthington Bridges works in collaboration with existing non-profits, faith communities and service organizations in the Worthington community. Since its launch in January, Worthington Bridges has already helped collect clothing for families, purchased a bus pass for a parent to get to a new job, and raised funds for personal hygiene items for our schools. You can be a part of Worthington Bridges in two ways. You can sign up online to receive notifications when a need is posted, and you can become an advocate for families in our area.
