Mental Health Services Expansion

Urban Bridge

Award Date: August 10, 2022
Awarded: $20,000

Urban Bridge empowers under-represented communities through building bridges of hope to health, wholeness, and greater economic opportunity. The agency is strengthening its approach to addressing the current mental health crisis exacerbated by the effects of 2020 to present - from the Covid-19 pandemic to racial injustices & challenges. For minority populations in NEOKC who have already experienced years of outcome disparity, these past two years have only further increased this disparity and ever-present challenges. In the summer of 2021, to address this inequality (?), Urban Bridge made the strategic decision to explore an exponential increase in its capacity to address & serve mental health needs through its programs and formally established a Mental Health Services department.
