We invite you to a better life.
Bridges of Iowa graduates will live free from substance abuse and criminality, become contributing members of their families and society, and continue to explore and to develop their individual faith.
Faith, Hope, and Love, Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, Temperance.
Twenty years ago Don and Charlene Lamberti formed a foundation that provided the idea and funding for the innovative and comprehensive Bridges of Iowa program. They were moved by their son Anthony’s personal struggle with substance abuse and experiences within the criminal justice system. Bridges of Iowa is a local organization that for twenty years has run an effective, successful, long-term substance abuse treatment and reentry program. We have been collaborating with Polk County Iowa for many years on our shared goal of reducing recidivism in our community and successfully returning those affected by substance abuse back to their loved ones.
