- Resources for Youth
The Bridge Mobile Medical Van travels through the streets of Boston, Cambridge, and surrounding areas weekday evenings, stopping at locations where young people gather to offer free and confidential services.
Volunteer medical staff offer homeless and street youth ages 14 to 24 free basic first aid, referrals, and health advice, as well as access to an array of services, including crisis intervention, emergency shelter, survival items (food, blankets, clothes), assessment, counseling, and education. In addition, the Van offers youth a place to connect with a supportive adult. Each year, Bridge’s vans make more than 3,000 contacts with runaway, homeless, and street youth across the Boston area.
