The BRIDGE Project (BRIDGE) was born in 2009 as the group project of the Human Services 152: Issues in Human Services course of The George Washington University’s Human Services Program. Under the direction of now, Professor Emeritus, Honey Nashman, and Graduate Teaching Assistants, Natalie Kaplan and Lee Goldstein, BRIDGE worked with the Healthy and Affordable Food For ALL coalition’s DC Food Finder, Bread for the City’s referral database, and other community resources to bring together the The BRIDGE Project Resource Guidebook. The 64-page print guidebook was published in November of 2009, and 2,000 copies have since been distributed throughout the DC metro community.

Today, Professor Emily Morrison, Director of the Human Services Program, guides the students of the HMSR 152 class through in depth community-based research projects to explore the depths of social service provision in the Washington, DC community. Through this 6-credit service-learning course, the students continue to update and contribute to The BRIDGE Project website through their research and direct work with community-based organizations and nonprofits.
