WHO WE ARE
The Bridge Home is a non-profit organization devoted to bridging the gap between homelessness and housing by providing shelter, support, and inspiring a pathway forward for individuals and families experiencing or on the verge of homelessness.
Founded in 1985 to address the growing need of individuals and families requiring shelter, a trend that continues today, we are the only organization in the Two Rivers Region dedicated to ending the cycle of homelessness among single men, women, and families. In the last year alone, we have proudly served over 1,365 people, with more than 4,000 meals and 10,000 nights of shelter.
At The Bridge Home, we are not just dedicated to providing immediate relief. We provide a continuum of care from preventative services to housing programs. We offer the tools, resources, and education to empower and guide individuals and families facing the challenges of homelessness towards long-term solutions — free from judgment.
We walk with those who have fallen on hard times to help them find hope and a home.
We will build on our success to become a model service provider by implementing cutting edge best practices.
Inclusiveness, Hospitality, Respect, Self-empowerment, Compassion, Hope.
