Bridges of Hope
Stability, Engagement, Comunity
Homelessness has many faces. We often think of the homeless as addicts or the mentally ill. But a big percentage of American homeless are just people who have had bad things happen to them and are unable to pay their rent, lost their jobs, or were abused and ran away.
In our shelter we have had a dad who had to choose between paying rent or his child support – he chose his children and came to stay with us. We’ve had an abused young man who just turned 18 and could finally leave home. There have been women who just can’t make ends meet with their low paying jobs. Veterans who are struggling with PTSD and can’t settle back into life at home. Disabled men and women like Harry with no one to turn to. Without a home they have to sleep outside in their car, in a tent somewhere hidden, maybe on a friend’s couch, or even a makeshift lean-to.
Instead, Bridges of Hope allows these men and women to come into our shelter and have time to regroup, start over, have a CHANCE. We seek to end the cycle of homelessness in Greene County by providing time, engagement, and relationships, which in turn strengthens our community as a whole.
