Youth & Family Services

What We Do

After a short evaluation process with a Building Bridges Case Worker, we will connect the family or child with the appropriate support team or teams.


Food & Meal Plans:
During the time a child is a part of the Building Bridges program, we will provide nourishing food & meal plans to supplement the educational, musical, athletic or professional pursuits of that child.

  • Arkansas School Breakfast & Lunch Program Information

    If you are in need of specific items, let our support team know or contact us directly by phone, email, or on our contact page and we’ll be happy to help you in any way we can.
