River Bridge Regional Center Expands to New Building with SANE Alliance

Dec 12, 2018

River Bridge Regional Center is expanding into a new building for enhanced child advocacy services and to offer a new home to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners Alliance. While touring the new building, KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with River Bridge Regional Center Executive Director Blythe Chapman.

On Friday,  December 7, a small crowd gathered at 504 21st Street in Glenwood Springs to celebrate the ribbon-cutting for River Bridge Regional Center’s new facility.

The building is located just across the street from River Bridge Regional Center’s current building and includes space for the Mountain West Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners Alliance. For the first time since the Roaring Fork Valley’s SANE program closed in 2012, services for survivors of sexual assault, including exams, will once again be available in the Glenwood-area.

Garfield County Commissioners Tom Jankovsky and Mike Samson cut the ceremonial ribbon along with River Bridge Regional Center board members and staff.
