Board Members

Some of our valued Bridges Board members

Bridges is the oldest disability organization in Brevard and is a partner with United Way. David Cooke, Bridges president and CEO, leads a staff of 120 people that serves about 300 clients a day in 21 programs, including group homes, day programs, employment services, a transitional veterans home, on-the-job training, vocational rehabilitation and more.

The organization has an annual budget of $5 million. About 78 percent of that comes from Medicaid. The rest comes from donations, grants and fundraisers.
