At Bridges International, we believe a person can change. We're a Christian nonprofit recovery organization bridging the gap between incarceration and community re-entry. Through therapeutic communities, we help restore families.
To provide criminal justice involved individuals and their families with comprehensive therapeutic services
according to their recovery and re-entry needs.
Bridges of America/Bridges International was founded by Frank Costantino, an ex-felon who was released in January of 1972 from the Florida Department of Corrections. For more than 40 years, we have helped bridge the gap between incarceration and community re-entry.
Bridges International's services consist of multiple programs to accommodate needs of the incarcerated, former inmates and their families. Our evidence-based, peer-led treatment and recovery process helps to holistically meet the needs of each client.
