Marbridge

Marbridge

Marbridge is a non-profit residential community that offers transitional and lifetime care to adults with a wide range of cognitive abilities and — through compassion and faith — provides them opportunities to learn, experience, and achieve a whole new life.

Marbridge is nestled on over 200 acres,  just 13 miles south of downtown Austin, Texas. Marbridge provides a distinct alternative to group homes for adults with intellectual disabilities, offering a full spectrum of services tailored to individual needs and abilities. Each of our three communities — The Ranch, The Village, & The Villa — provide a different level of care, support and, guidance.

Core Values:

Safety
Nothing comes before the safety of Marbridge residents. Marbridge staff make it their personal responsibility to know safety policies and reinforce positive, safe behaviors.
Well-being
Emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual well-being are addressed on a daily basis to promote independence, self-awareness, and looking at how all services can provide wholistic support.

Happiness
Everyone deserves to be happy. That’s why Marbridge residents are encouraged to pursue safe and appropriate interests that add happiness to their lives.
Learn
Residents at Marbridge pursue various educational opportunities to learn new skills that will enable them to reach the highest level of independence possible.
Experience
Marbridge provides a wide range of social, employment, and leisure activities where residents may practice new skills and make new discoveries about their individual capabilities and potential.
Achieve
All residents are encouraged to pursue their goals. Marbridge consciously searches for new methods, programs, training, and physical facilities that will enhance the success of adults with cognitive challenges who live at Marbridge.

Next Quarter we'll be supporting AAMHC!

AAMHC

For Q2 we are supporting the Austin Area Mental Health Consumers, Inc.! They provide services at The Self-Help and Advocacy Center (The SHAC). "We are proud to report that we make a difference for people with lived experiences of mental health, substance use, and homelessness. Our members receive life affirming services, embrace RECOVERY and healthy living, become gainfully employed, and give back to their communities.  By utilizing different means to connect with our members (support groups, Peer Mentor Program, Return to Work Program, Computer Lab with Internet Access and Tutorials Resource for Mental Health Navigation, and SHAC SNACKS, to name a few), we find these options for recovery an healthy living effective."
