I Am A Rabble-Rouser and Proud Of It!

Andrea’s Grandpa Joe inspired the creation of the Bridges program

Bridges Together’s Executive Director, Andrea Fonte Weaver, had the pleasure of working with GRAND Magazine this month to share her story of her passion and purpose for starting Bridges Together. Family is everything to Andrea so, it’s no surprise to learn that the inception of Bridges was inspired by her bond with her grandparents (in particular, her Grandpa Joe)!  A Bridge That We All Need To Cross Over is a reflection on the past and a look ahead to what Bridges Together holds for the future as we continue to pave the way for intergenerational engagement and resources.
