2020 Tigerpalooza Recipient
Empowering high school students in family crisis to pursue education without obstacles.
Bridges is a nonprofit formed through a collaboration of the Norman community, Norman Public Schools, and the Norman Housing Authority. We assist high school students who live alone due to a family crisis, including the death of a parent, parental incarceration, or homelessness, by offering 20 individual apartments with sliding-scale rent based on the student’s income, connection to other social service agencies, assistance with almost any school-related activity, trained mentors, and college scholarships.
In return, students are responsible for maintaining their grades and school attendance, which we check on-line weekly; attending weekly life skills meetings about things like budgeting, personal safety, and job interviews; maintaining a job so that they can pay rent and bills; and conducting themselves maturely, including following the city of Norman’s curfew requirements.
