Building connections to a brighter future, Urban Bridges Inc. is an urban youth program dedicated to teaching children from the streets the values and life skills needed for success. Based in the Portland, Oregon area, we have the patience needed to work with young people and help them survive and thrive.
Founder, Patricia Feathers herself came from a broken family, with no mom or dad who could teach her important life skills. Coming from this background, she decided to dedicate her life to making an impact on others. Children are struggling in their lives without parents or role models. We step in to teach them how to first respect themselves and then how to respect others.
Never discriminating against anyone, we want to help any child from age 7 to 19, especially underprivileged and underserved children. This includes kids in foster care and those labeled "problem children." We also want children who have made major mistakes and found themselves in the juvenile justice system to have the opportunity for self-improvement to avoid becoming re-offenders. Contact us at (971) 444-5230 if you know a child in trouble or would like to talk to our staff and see if we are a fit for your family, group, program or organization. An open mind is all it takes.
