About Executive Director; Chad A. Ludwig, MSW, ADAC, DI
Chad serves as a first Executive Director for Bridges Oregon. Since 2013, Chad has sought a community-based assessment that will identify and address the needs and concerns of the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community in Oregon as it relates to their overall quality of life. In December 2016, a report of the community-based needs assessment was published by Western Oregon University. With this report, Chad worked with the legislature during the 2017 session to no avail. Chad founded Bridges Oregon to respond to the needs in the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community.
