On January 1, 2019, NewBridge officially came into existence as a non-profit organization serving older adults in Madison and Monona. While a new organization, it has a long history of service. Each of the Senior Coalitions has provided service for over 40 years.
To ensure longer, safer and healthier independent lives, NewBridge provides a variety of services for older adults. NewBridge services include:
Case Management that connects social workers to seniors who need assistance accessing resources such as food, transportation, affordable housing, energy assistance and benefits.
Senior Meals that provide nutritious meals to seniors throughout Madison and Monona.
Home Chore Program that connects volunteers to seniors who need assistance with household chores so they can remain in their homes.
By merging into one agency, NewBridge will integrate these core programs to provide high quality service citywide with reduced wait times. In addition, NewBridge will expand current programs serving a portion of the city to the whole city of Madison and Monona. Moving forward, NewBridge will have the infrastructure in place to develop new programs to respond to new issues affecting older adults.
