Bridge to Benefits

The Children’s Defense Fund Minnesota has created a youth-oriented Bridge to Benefits tool. Information regarding youth accessing public programs has now been posted on the Bridge to Benefits website.

Bridge to Benefits – Youth

If you are a provider, please consider becoming a Bridge to Benefits partner. This one-stop shop approach connects families and individuals to economic resources without taking too much time for the service provider or the client.

The partnership is free and includes:

  • Training on the website
  • A box of program applications and handouts
  • Data reports on the screens completed by the organization, which can be used for grant reporting and other purposes
  • Password for the site that allows subscribers to use our e-mail referral feature that sends an e-mail on behalf of those screened to a local application assistance organization that will follow up with the client and help them apply and enroll in the programs for which they are eligible.
