Executive Director

Frank "Bud" Volinski

Frank “Bud” Volinsky has a decades long relationship with, and love of Grand Cayman. Now a permanent resident of Grand Cayman, he received his B.A. in Psychology from Villanova University, and is a Certified General Contractor in the state of Florida. 

Upon formal retirement from the construction industry, Bud realised an unmet need in Cayman for safe supported transitional housing for Caymanians in early recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction. In 2010 Bud became a co-founding member of Cayman’s Hope for Today Foundation and served as its first CEO, envisioning, developing, and implementing Cayman’s first supported transitional housing programme. In 2012 Bud co-founded The Bridge Foundation Cayman, a supported transitional “First Step” house for those Caymanians in early recovery and serves as its Executive Director. Bud brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and a passion for helping others to our organisation.

Director/Operation Manager 

Jack McLean

Jack brings a wealth of practical knowledge and life experience to The Bridge Foundation and Beacon Farms. A recovering addict himself with eleven years of sobriety, Jack is uniquely qualified and experienced for his positions as Operations Manager for The Bridge Foundation and advisory board member of Beacon Farms.

Jack’s experience in management and leadership in supporting transitional housing at The Bridge Foundation allow the organisation to expand programmes and opportunities for those Caymanians in early recovery. His previous practical experience as an Emergency Medical Technician (E.M.T.) and current ownership of a marine construction company is a great benefit to the Bridge Foundation.
