Bridges Community Resource Network Inc. recently relocated from Kasilof Street to its new digs in the U-Haul Building on the Kenai Spur Highway in Soldotna.
The move was precipitated by the changing requirements of its 750 members and a need for less space, since donating its resource library to the Soldotna Public Library book sale.
The new location has more available parking without the cost of plowing and sanding. It also offers a more modern office space for its meetings.
Bridges is a nonprofit organization started in December 1993 by a group of community members seeking to provide a place for residents and organizations to have access to a variety of area-based res-ources that would support the area's overall well-being.

Parents and Overeaters Anonymous, Unitarian Universalists, Healthy Communities Healthy People, currently meet at the office.
