The initial goal was to establish a residential service for young adults with sickle cell disease. Collaborators and representives from variety of community agencies participated in the planning and development of the residential plan of services for Bridges. The plan of services evolved to embrace a broader vision and mission. The evolution of the organization resulted in a name change in 1999 to the Bridges Pointe, Inc. Steps have been taken to establish a community-based presence and social support center for the sickle cell population in the Triangle. Emphasis has been placed on services tailored to meet the needs of the adolescent and youg adults, 18-35.
