Advocacy

Bridges Pointe, Inc. helps to create a safe space for sickle cell persons to have the ability to express their concerns with their care. Bridges promotes sickle cell persons’ rights and responsibilities by assisting them with exploring their choices and options. At the federal level, through our membership with the SCDAA, we voice initiatives to present before members of Congress and their staff to help educate legislators about the Sickle Cell community.

COVID-19 Relief

Covid 19

COVID-19 Relief provided by Bridges Pointe, Inc. has been able to support thirteen Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) patients in 2020 as well as twenty-two patients in 2021 thus far. These numbers include the caregivers who provide direct support to family members with SCD.  Bridges Pointe, Inc. has assisted SCD patients in the following areas of need: Food, Housing, Utilities, COVID-19 Care Package Kit, Gas, Clothing, Rent/Mortgage, Medical Co-Pay Supplies, Prescription, Counseling, and transportation assistance. However, Bridges Pointe, Inc. would like to provide more to our patients and their families, but the Program is temporarily on hold until more funds are obtained.
