  • Mission:
  • Inspired by the values of caring and respect, together we guide individuals with disabilities and other challenges to achieve and enjoy their highest quality of life and personal growth.

  • Overview:
  • Bridgewell is a highly respected, nonprofit human services organization providing direct support to individuals living with developmental disabilities, homelessness, addiction, and other life challenges. We work in 23 communities in eastern Massachusetts and serve just over 5,600 individuals and their families each year. Bridgewell’s continuum of care includes residential services, day habilitation, behavioral health services, employment training, homeless services, substance abuse and addiction services, and affordable housing. Bridgewell’s core purpose is to help everyone we serve live as fully and independently as possible while achieving their own goals.

  • History:
  • Bridgewell originated in 1958 as a child guidance center in Lynn, Mass., helping children with emotional difficulties. Greater Lynn Mental Health, as Bridgewell was formerly known, expanded to include adults with psychiatric disabilities in the early 1970’s. Around this time, the deinstitutionalization movement prompted the agency to open community-based residential programs for individuals with developmental disabilities and modify its name to Greater Lynn Mental Health and Retardation Association. The agency soon became a leading service provider for individuals dually diagnosed with developmental and psychiatric disabilities, opening an outpatient clinic for this population in 1989. Further expertise also soon included individuals with disabilities requiring medically intensive care.

    Services continued to build in response to community needs in the 1990’s. Day programs offering skill-building, socialization, and employment opportunities soon augmented services for adults with developmental disabilities. The agency also expanded into congregate housing for formerly homeless individuals with disabilities, first in Lynn and later in Lowell, Mass. This further cemented our presence in Lowell, where services including group therapy for individuals with persistent mental illness continued to grow.
