Bridget Rogers has been with Joining Forces for Families (JFF) as a social worker for over six years, but worked in the Truax community for at least 15. She’s the housing expert at JFF and has all the answers about financial resources and landlord issues — even though JFF isn’t a housing agency. When NPC launched the Northside Early Childhood Zone initiative, Bridget supported the new staff as they worked with new parents to promote positive parenting, family stability and healthy development of the children. With her experience and successful skills, she’s a mentor to the next generation of social workers.

A member of the City’s Community Services Commission, Bridget is a powerful advocate for residents. She serves on the Northside Neighborhood Resource Team. And she convenes monthly meetings of area social workers, police and other providers to share information and collaborate on solutions. She builds relationships with residents, and they trust her. She brings their voice to policy makers on a regular basis.

Bridget is noted for her authenticity with clients. She is supportive while helping them find their own power to make the changes they need.
