Information The Mission of the Amherst Bridge Adult Service Centre is to provide programs, services and opportunities, for adults with intellectual disabilities to allow them to reach their full potential as members of our community. 
Our community is inclusive, respectful and supportive of all people. 
The Bridge Adult Service Centre (BASC) is an independent non for-profit organization that provides a day program for adults with intellectual disabilities. The BASC provides Vocational and Life Enhancement programs. Clients participate in the daily operations of the laundry service, the used clothing store and the contract service. They also participate in volunteer work in the community, with hopes that someday the individuals we serve will secure paid employment.
