We believe all people with disabilities have the right to choose where and with whom they live and work. We have a strong commitment to the rights, dignity and freedom that people with disabilities share with everyone.
Where Our Story Begins
Our family owned and operated agency was born out of a mother’s love for her son, and over the past 15 years has transformed into a national company serving people with disabilities as well as the aging population across the United States.
By experiencing and fundamentally understanding the hurdles those in the disability community face each day, Bridges will always keep our focus on you, the families and individuals we support. Our service delivery model reflects our passion, understanding and experience.
Bridges of Virginia promises to provide the quality services that our founder, Peggy Burlison, would want provided to her son.
Bridges’ CEO, Jonathan Burlison, continues to carry out his mother’s vision of a world where people with disabilities have the same rights, respect, and opportunities as everyone else. Our agency values changes and advancements in technology and utilizes them to better the way in which we provide services to the people we support. We recognize the importance of working hard to gain your trust and build the reputation of a quality provider of services to people with disabilities. We vow to always provide the individualized supports required to individuals and families in Virginia. We are honored and privileged to be a reliable and invaluable resource for those we serve.
Our Mission and Values
Bridges’ Mission is to provide the services necessary to allow individuals with disabilities, with the support of their families and friends, to live, learn and work where they choose within the community.
We believe all people with disabilities have the right to choose where and with whom they live and work. We have a strong commitment to the rights, dignity and freedom that people with disabilities share with everyone. We believe people with disabilities, with the support of their families, can have the expectation of a full life as participating members of their community.
