Economic Empowerment Coordinator

Bridgett Brown

The Economic Empowerment Coordinator helps consumers learn about their options with regards to disability and their finances – whether they are considering getting on or off benefits, going back to work, or going back to school. Via benefits workshops, monthly Economic Empowerment events, and one-to-one consultation, Bridgett provides consumers with information  so that they will be equipped to make informed decisions about their own lives, with regards to finances.  Bridgett also also helps people procure funds for back rent and security deposits via the Season of Sharing fund. Bridgett is a long-time mental health advocate, and has led workshops to train people in law enforcement in working with members of the public who have psych disabilities.
