(Concord, New Hampshire) – Community Bridges is pleased to announce they are now offering TyzeTM, a private, online tool for connecting individuals with disabilities to friends, family members, neighbors, and professionals within their personal network.
By offering Tyze, Community Bridges intends to help users at the center of their network develop and communicate with their connected circle of support.

The users of this network may include individuals with disabilities or those caring for individuals with disabilities. Tyze will help these users to further the connection to their community through message and calendar systems, virtual to-do lists, picture and story sharing, and more.

These functions will benefit users by allowing the day-to-day needs of the person at the center of the network to be met, strengthening the coordinated care and quality of information provided, and creating a friendly, safe online environment in which users can feel empowered and involved in the community, ultimately leading to improved health outcomes.

“The availability of a support network among individuals with disabilities and their caregivers can significantly impact their quality of life,” states Roy Gerstenberger, Executive Director of Community Bridges. “We are confident that offering Tyze will enable Community Bridges to further assist in the building of these networks, enabling the population we serve to live more connected, fulfilled lives.”

For more information or to get connected to Tyze, please call
