Building Better Future with the Bridge to Life Teen Homes
Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP) is a program that provides 24-hour care and intensive mental health services to children and youth who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or exploitation. The program is designed to provide a therapeutic environment that promotes healing and recovery for the youth. The program includes individual, group, and family therapy, as well as educational and recreational activities. Currently, we are in the process of obtaining a license to operate two STRTP facilities in the city of Visalia, CA – one for 6 girls and another for 6 boys. These facilities have already been leased by Bridge to Life Teen Homes. Our specialists will help those young individuals navigate the challenges they face and ensure that their unique needs are met. We are committed to providing the resources needed to help these young people succeed in every way.
We kindly request support for Bridge to Life Teen Homes in the area of transportation. Finding a vehicle that meets our transportation needs is of utmost importance at the moment. We cannot open our doors without having a vehicle. To effectively provide for and support the educational and required social services to our youth, it is important for us to have our own means of transportation. This is especially crucial as these young individuals will most likely attend different schools within the cities of Tulare County. We will also take responsibility for transportation to meetings with social workers, court dates, and medical appointments. Having a reliable vehicle is essential for transporting up to 15 passengers (including the driver, personnel and 12 residents) to and from their destinations.
Therefore, we are seeking your support in the acquisition of a minibus, such as the Ford Transit Passenger Van XL or a similar vehicle with a 15-passenger seat capacity. According to the pricing listed on the Ford official website, a minibus of this nature would cost approximately $57,000.00, including tax and licensing. We humbly request funding in the form of this amount or for a similar vehicle that meets our transportation needs.
We genuinely appreciate your consideration of our request and the potential impact it could have on the lives of the youth we strive to serve. It would contribute significantly to our mission of empowering these young individuals to maximize their potential in building a brighter future for themselves.
