Bridgemark, Inc.

Bridgemark, Inc., is a licensed and comprehensive behavioral health treatment center, in operation for the past 43 years, offering outpatient, intensive outpatient and residential services. The agency currently operates a residential treatment program for men, intensive outpatient day and evening programs for men and women, and a full range of nonmedical behavioral health outpatient services for men, women, adolescents and families. All treatment services, including 12- Step meetings, are also accessible by members of the Deaf community and Spanish-speaking community as well.

Bridgemark is guided by the vison to develop and maintain a management model that incorporates interventions for use across the many stages of personal growth, setbacks and transformation individuals experience on their way to recovery by matching treatment and support services. Such resources are available through the many and varied links and partnerships the agency has forged within the community and with allied organizations and providers as well.

Proceeds will help to provide American Sign Language interpreters to those who are Deaf or hard of hearing who want or need to attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings. 

Habitat for Humanity – West Bay and Northern Rhode Island

Habitat for Humanity has been building homes, communities and hope through direct engagement for four decades. As powerful as that has been, some 1.6 billion people still live in inadequate housing and 100 million others have no home at all. This challenges us to become more effective catalysts for systematic change- change that will help exponentially more families than any one organization ever could serve alone. To affect the housing deficit at scale, the plan calls for operating with impact in three interconnected spheres of influence: community, sector and society.

Proceeds will assist in providing a Brush of Kindess to those who are currently living in a home and in an unsafe environment but cannot afford to do the repairs on their own.
