As part of HomeBridge's celebrations to mark 30 years of service to youth and families all employees who have been with the organization for 15 years or more were honored. That day, the group was the "Twinkles" within the organization because the twinkle in their eye, reflecting their wisdom and spirit of caring.
"They have a twinkle in their eyes. Dr. Al Trieschman (youth care advocate and professional) once said "the youth becomes a twinkle in your eyes and you in his. . .They (good workers) understand that relationships are not formed instantly, and we have to 'do time' (often long and hard time) in the 'kid's space' before either of us see the 'twinkle'." Ernie Nightingale 2003
The group of 27 employees collectively brings 491 years of experience to HomeBridge and includes management, youth care and administrative employees.
HomeBridge continues to be a progressive organization, always growing and improving and we are sure that the next 30 years, and the people we meet as colleagues and clients will be just as inspiring.
We would like to dedicate this section of our website to the heroes within our community.
"Not the glittering weapon fights the fight, but rather the hero’s heart"
- Bob Dylan-
"The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for all to see by"
- Felix Adler-
The heroes honored in this section start each day with a hero's heart and light the way for all to see through their leadership. It is HomeBridge's privilege to work beside our dedicated employees, donors, volunteers, and community partners. We are inspired each day by the resiliency reflected in the youth living throughout our facilities and their talent within.
“HomeBridge helped me be more confident in myself.”
