Our History

Based in Everett, and serving Snohomish County, Bridgeways incorporated in 1981. Our array of programs and services has evolved to meet changing community needs, the ever-shifting healthcare landscape, and taking into account services offered by other providers in Snohomish County.

Bridgeways is a nonprofit, 501c3 corporation. We fulfill our social mission on a daily basis through our manufacturing operation and an array of programs and services.

Core mission-driven programs connect low-income adults living with mental illness to life-changing opportunities through employment, housing supports, and increased engagement with mental health and other supportive services.
