Bridges for Families
Bridges for Families, sponsored by St. Mary Medical Center’s Community
Health Department and First 5 San Bernardino, is a program designed to
help parents develop the necessary skills for raising healthy children.
The program provides resources for emergency housing, food and family
counseling. Our bilingual staff, speaking English and Spanish, provides

assistance and non-emergency transportation.
Our program assists you and your family with four key elements:
- Meeting your family's basic needs, such as food, clothing, shelter
- Ensuring access to medical services, including children's development
screening and health insurance enrollment.
- Parental support with parenting classes and counseling.
- Ensuring adequate nutrition and childhood obesity prevention.
