The Bridges’ Education Endowment Fund in honor of Elizabeth Hedrick, a long-time, committed supporter, volunteer and advocate of the mission of Bridges was established to ensure the annual financial support to a Bridges’ student upon high school graduation to assist in their plans following this milestone.
Bridges of Norman is a nonprofit organization formed through a collaboration of the Norman community, Norman Public Schools & the Norman Housing Authority. They assist high school students who live alone due to a family crisis, including a family homelessness or parental death or incarceration, by offering individual apartments with sliding-scale rent based on the student’s income. They offer other assistance to aid students in graduating high school and guidance to help them prepare for after graduation. In return, the students are responsible for maintaining their grades, attending class, and participating in weekly life skills meeting.
