Andrea Bridges – Executive Director

Andrea Bridges is the Executive Director of the CARE Center. Her role is to collaborate with area churches, corporate foundations, local schools and community stakeholders to provide crisis services, education initiatives, and workforce development to the rural, under-resourced areas of southeast Madison County.

She previously served as the Education Coordinator for The CARE Center for almost 10 years. Andrea has developed and managed educational programs in the five schools served by The CARE Center, including four 21st Century Community Learning Center Grants and United Way Community Partnership funding. Andrea has served on the Alabama Community Education Association (ACEA) executive board since 2015, serving as president in 2016. She is honored to be chosen as one of only fifteen across the nation to serve as the 2018-2019 Ambassador for the Afterschool Alliance.

The CARE Center’s motto for 2019 is “Family On a Mission” to not only serve our neighbors in need, but to serve each other (our co-workers) as well. Andrea feels blessed to be a part of The CARE Center family.
Andrea and her husband, Kevin, along with their two children, Wesley and Alexandrea, attend Owens Cross Roads Church of Christ where they are involved with the youth ministry, Lads to Leaders Program, and mission work.
