Our goal is to help caseworkers meet the needs of Adult Protective Service clients by supporting Bridge Rooms throughout West Texas.   Bridge Rooms are a store-like setting that caseworkers can 'shop' at 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Bridge Rooms have food, personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, fans, heaters, adaptive equipment, and medical supplies available for distribution to clients being served by Adult Protective Services.   The Bridge Rooms are located in Adult Protective Service offices in Big Spring, Fort Stockton, Midland, Odessa, and San Angelo.   If you would like to donate items, please contact Robin Ruiz @ (432)684-3201.
