Building Bridges (BBI) is a national initiative identifying and advancing best practice and policy for youth and families receiving residential interventions. BBI creates strong partnerships between families, youth, residential and community service organizations, and policy makers to ensure high-quality supports and services. BBI’s goals are to reduce readmissions to residential settings, strengthen youth and family engagement in treatment planning, and sustain long-term positive life outcomes. for youth and families receiving residential interventions. Expanding BBI throughout Texas will create better futures for vulnerable Texas children, youth, and families, and provide a clear roadmap for future policy and funding considerations.
