BRIDGE OF HOPE-HELPING WITH PERSONAL NEEDS

Bridge Program
Our “Bridge Program” links participants with a Community
Health Worker to co-create a care plan for permanent housing, mental and
physical health, substance treatment, and employment. The goal is to
stabilize the homeless and housing insecure with an expectation of
graduation.

A Place to Hang Out
Sometimes it is hard to find a quiet place. The hang out room is a large coffee-shop environment where you can eat a hot meal, get a cup of coffee, watch some TV, use the free WiFi, and enjoy some friendly conversation.

Shoes and Clothing
Bridge of Hope’s Clothing Boutique has clothes for people of all ages. Whether you are looking for something for a job interview or you need a pair of shoes, let us know what you are looking for, and she will help you find something.
Clothing Room is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Health Professionals
Please feel free to talk with our staff about special needs you have, such as needing to see a nurse, a social worker, an educator, or a counselor. We have some professionals that come to our facility to assist, and we have a network of resources that might be able to meet your needs.
