Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, Building Bridges Foundation at Anderson Farm has closed our gates to all but essential services. 

We are looking forward to the time when we can again welcome visitors to the farm.

Their kindness and patience revealed amazing commitment…volunteering their time to help Veterans, Active Duty, and First Responders—all because they CARE….I know this will sound cliché, but they helped me save my marriage, helped me accept myself and in many ways saved my life. God Bless everyone there.

At Building Bridges I feel at peace and safe and very welcomed and cared about; there are no note pads recording my thoughts or computers being typed on holding me accountable in the future for anything I might say. This is healing.
