Founded in 1992, Bridges to Community (EIN: 13-3731405) develops poverty alleviation strategies with local communities in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Within selected regions of the two countries, Bridges works closely with community leaders to help mitigate poverty in four distinct, but overlapping, program areas: health, education, housing and economic development. All our program areas are driven by volunteer participation that incorporates service learning into the volunteers' on-the-ground experience.
