Under the supervision of medical director, Dr. Hans Bruntmyer, the Street Medicine team spends the majority of their time walking the streets and remote areas of San Antonio and Bexar County equipped with backpacks filled with basic medical supplies, water, socks, and hygiene kits
In addition to predetermined rounds, the team also responds to calls from local outreach workers and law enforcement.
The team does their best to accommodate the environment and effectively care for whatever they might encounter. The team can handle basic primary care issues such as wounds, fractures, sprains, colds, back pain, neck pain, etc. Screenings for blood pressure and blood sugar are also available.

At The Bridge, we strive to be more than just a handout, we want to be a hand up. We want to engage in meaningful conversations with our homeless and hurting community and look them in the eyes and let them know that we care. So many of us just want to feel like we belong, and that we're seen, and for our street community it's no different.
If you don't feel comfortable engaging in conversation, we also have ways to help! You can work in our food line, in the clothing distribution, as a shower coordinator/usher (training required), cutting hair, or joining our prayer team.
Continuing service with current participants. Mentors are reaching out to check on individual needs during this time.
