The purpose of the organization shall be to serve as an advocate
for abused, neglected, and/or exploited aged and disabled adults. An additional purpose will be to increase
the effectiveness of all adult protective services and agencies. These purposes shall be accomplished by the
sharing of ideas and experience between the members of this organization, the staff of Adult Protective Services, adult service
agencies, and the community. The organization shall attempt to educate the community as to the proper
case of aged and disabled adults. Further, by remaining sensitive to the needs of the community, the Advisory Board
shall make appropriate recommendations for the improvement of adult services within the region it serves.
We are a non-profit organization involved in fundraising, grant-seeking
and contribution support to help vulnerable aged and disabled citizens in West Texas. We support Bridge Rooms in
Big Spring, Fort Stockton, Midland, Odessa and San Angelo. Bridge Rooms provide food, clothes, fans/heaters, medical
and adaptive equipment, household cleaning supplies, and personal hygiene items that are used to 'bridge' the gap when government
funding is not available for the abused, neglected and/or exploited elderly and disabled of West Texas. We participate
in community events that address senior issues through partnership with Adult Protective Services. We promote increased
public awareness of the challenges faced by the elderly and disabled in an effort to decrease the abuse, neglect and exploitation
of these individuals.
