Community Bridges program sites suffer losses due to theft, vandalism, accident

Facilities that offer services to low-income children, families, and seniors in two cities in Santa Cruz County have suffered a spate of losses due to theft, vandalism and an accident in recent weeks.
“It’s extremely rare and coincidental that these events have happened so close together,” said Raymon Cancino, chief executive officer of Community Bridges, a local nonprofit organization that serves 27,000 people in the county through 10 programs at 20 sites. “Our programs are in safe areas, and are crucial to the communities they serve. But these unforeseen expenses could take a major toll on the program budgets if insurance isn’t able to cover the full cost.”

Since 1977, Community Bridges has been weaving the safety net for Santa Cruz County and beyond, helping make our community stronger, healthier, and more vibrant.

We reach over 27,000 Santa Cruz area residents each year! That's one out of every ten people, maybe someone on your block or in your family.

Our Family of Programs not only meets the needs of local children, families, and seniors, but with over 27,000 participants each year, we are also able to anticipate emerging needs and find collaborative solutions to issues such as closing the academic achievement gap, supporting seniors to live with independence and dignity, preventing child abuse through parent support and education, and increasing access to medical care and good nutrition.

CDD is on the lookout for substitute teachers!
