Girls’ Trip to Pawley’s Island, SC:  letter from Colleen Kennedy

Published on August 10, 2013

On June 9th, Lynn and I picked up 4 girls that are involved in the court system to take them on a wonderful, fun filled trip to Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. Pawley’s Island is just south of Myrtle Beach and is the perfect place for our trip. Thankfully, Pawley’s Island isn’t too commercialized so the beach is beautiful and not to crowded; but we are close enough to Myrtle Beach to enjoy the “touristy” pleasures they have there. Lynn and I have taken many girls’ trips, but Pawley’s Island is our favorite. more »

This trip is No Joke; My 6 Day Canoe & Portage Endeavor in the Boundary Waters with 5 At- Risk youth by Mark Carpenter: My name is Mark and here is a little background about myself because it's relevant to this story.

New Look, Same Legacy

Published on January 15, 2013

There are many changes taking place at Building Bridges! We have a new website, we're on Facebook and have new leadership. The danger in making changes is losing the very thing which has made Building Bridges successful for well over 30 years, “Compassion”. We have a plan to make sure that does not happen. more »


Remembering Ron Reigelsperger

Published on January 14, 2013

If one was asked to identify who has been the most influential individual in the city, many people would say Paul Lawrence Dunbar, the Wright Brothers, Charles F. Kettering, Edwin C. Moses, Bing Davis, John H. Patterson, or James M. Cox. Those are just a few of the notable people that have made a difference in our city. It is fair to say that when it comes to helping, understanding, and advocating for the well being of at-risk children in our community, there is no childcare worker ambassador greater than the late Ron Reigelsperger. more »

We were absolutely floored recently when we were contacted by a former employee and current member of 100+ Women Who Care; Kelly Weiler. She nominated Building Bridges to receive funding from her fellow members. Even though we were up against other worthy organizations, we were awarded just over $20,000...right on the spot!! more »


Football Season

Published on October 31, 2011

Recently, Building Bridges took part in the Montgomery County Juvenile Court’s Flag Football Tournament at Arthur Fisher Park. There were many talented young men and staff participating and of course it was all for the “Kids”. Well, it may have started off that way, but with bragging rights on the line everyone played with intensity and teamwork. more »


From Dawn To Dusk

Published on September 24, 2011

While most of us are safely sleeping in our beds, there is a small group of people who stand ready to help some of the most vulnerable in our community. I am not talking about our local law enforcement, fire or medical professionals. I’m referring to those who serve disadvantaged youth at Building Bridges. more »
