Subject: Reaching Out to Residents of City Shelters

Every little bit helps.
Assertive Community Treatment, or ACT, is designed to help people whose needs have not been met by the mental health system reengage in their treatment and move forward towards stability.

Of the 476 New Yorkers The Bridge’s seven ACT teams serve, over 200 will spend the holidays in city mental-health shelters.

Histories of trauma, transience, and distrust of traditional systems can make it difficult to accept even basic emergency services like shelter. To find and maintain housing, people with histories of homelessness need services that support their work to build independent-living skills and psychiatric stability.

For someone wary of traditional mental healthcare, renewing a commitment to recovery takes courage and support. Shelter-based ACT teams provide motivation, accountability, a 24/7 call line and connections to the resources that will enable clients to be active participants in their own treatment.

With three shelter-based ACT teams, The Bridge has unique access to this transient population not connected to care. We invite you to help us provide the support and resources these New Yorkers need to get back on their feet.

On behalf of all of us at The Bridge, thank you.
