Building Bridges to Better Lives

Established in 1956, Bridges BTC helps adults with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities bridge the gap to a better, more productive, healthier and more joyful life.

Over six decades we’ve grown into an organization supporting up to 100 individuals each day in residential programs, day supervision, work skills and self sufficiency training and veterans programs in a positive, nurturing environment. We work in a collaborative capacity with all the other disability support agencies in Brevard County to make our community better.
