Bridging the Gap

What makes our work here so vital? At New Genesis, we help people with disabilities bridge the gap between where they are, and where they hope to be. It's about meeting clients where they're at, assessing their needs, and helping them to achieve their goals. We all have differing strengths and abilities; we all have unique needs and face different challenges. 

 

I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.
— Rosalia de Castro

None of us can know what the future holds, nor where our path will take us. Sometimes, all you can do is follow your heart, trusting the compass of flesh and blood and instinct to lead you in the right direction.

Following a path with heart is never easy... but it's always worth it. When you take the time to bridge that gap with another person, you'll be amazed by the treasures that dwell within their heart; the sparkle in their eyes; the strength of their spirit.

We build too many walls and not enough bridges.

When you see a person in need, do you take a moment to ask yourself how you can help? If another person is struggling, helping them creates a connection between you. It amazes me, how often people fail to assist those in need.

Every day, I see folks on the streets, begging for spare change, so they can afford the things most of us take for granted- a hot meal, a place to sleep, or a warm coat.  Often, people brush past them in a hurry, not even making eye contact, as though misfortune is a contagious disease. It only takes a moment to offer a smile, a helping hand, or a kind word. 

He that would be a leader, must also be a bridge.
