Building a Bridge of Hope
Taylor talks about the journey that guided her to lead the women's resource center in Richmond
It’s a Monday afternoon, and Bridge of Hope – Richmond executive director Connie Taylor is in the middle of an interview with accessHealth News. She’s sharing her desire to be an advocate for families via this women’s resource center when the phone rings.

She answers it. A desperate young couple has a baby who is very sick, and they don’t have insurance. They need help for their infant, but don’t know what to do.

True to the clinic’s name, Taylor extends a bridge of hope by connecting them with Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center, which serves all patients regardless of their ability to pay. That fire doused, Taylor hangs up and refocuses on the interviewer.
