Bridge Meadows: The power of place, permanence, and purpose

If you would like to see firsthand an intentional community – one Beth Baker highlights in her new book – please plan to
join us!

Bridge Meadows is a unique multi-generational community located in the Portsmouth neighborhood of North Portland where adoptive parents, foster children, and elders – those
over 55 – find a true home built with love and the shared vision of a better tomorrow.

Bridge Meadows works at the intersection of child welfare, aging and affordable housing- issues that impact each of us, not just socially and emotionally, but economically as well. It
is the only intentional intergenerational housing community for foster youth, adoptive parents, and low-income elders in the region, and the only one in the country in an urban setting. The Bridge Meadows model draws on the strengths of three generations towards a singular purpose- that all three generations may live full, meaningful and connected lives.

Presenter

Our Guide will be Derenda Schubert, Executive Director of Bridge Meadows. Dr. Schubert is a psychologist with professional experience including counseling children and families as well as creating and managing programs in the realms of foster care, mental health, and developmental
disabilities.
