Interested in volunteering? You can make a difference today!

Bridgewell’s three Human Rights Committees are looking for dedicated volunteers. The committees were established to promote, safeguard and protect the human dignity and legal rights of persons served by reviewing, monitoring and investigating the activities of Bridgewell programs. Human Rights Committee Membership consists of persons served, family members and advocates for persons served and professionals.

Rewarding volunteer opportunities exist for:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses (LPN and RN)
  • Psychologists and master’s level health professionals
  • Attorneys, paralegals, and law students
  • Other professionals and interested advocates

Human Rights Committees meet every other month at:

  • North Shore Committee – Lynn
  • Quannapowitt Committee – Lynn
  • Phoenix Committee – Tewksbury

The Department of Developmental Services and Department of Mental Health, requires Bridgewell to have Human Rights Committees to provide a safety net for the individuals we serve and an opportunity for transparency and accountability. This is an opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of individuals we serve. As a volunteer, you would protect human dignity, legal rights and monitor the safety of individuals in our care.
