About Us

The Bridge is a youth center located in Kirklin, Indiana. It is a non-denominational facility that offers programming which helps adolescents feel accepted, loved, and safe. Our prayer is that God uses The Bridge to change the hearts and lives of the youth in our community by promoting lasting relationships.


Exciting changes are coming in 2023! We will be seeking a new facility and updating our programs.
