The Bridge to Hope (B2H) engages local Christian churches in helping to end homelessness for single mothers and their children. The B2H is a three-way partnership between trained staff, one homeless, single mother and her children, and a trained, church-based mentoring group of 8 to 12 mentors from a local Christian faith community. Through use of this model, B2H seeks to promote physical, emotional, social and spiritual wholeness.
The role of the church is to create a support system for the family that goes beyond the working relationship that the B2H staff can offer. The church disciples their B2H family, socializes with them, learns who they are beyond being homeless and are examples of how to live successful lives. One of the most detrimental aspects of poverty and homelessness is the negative environment that surrounds such conditions. Families coming from that background are lifted out of that atmosphere and surrounded by positively and the endless possibilities that come with faith and hope.
Partnering churches also make it possible for B2H to serve more families by supporting our ministry through financial giving, mentoring a family and prayer. The church, individual and corporate donations help sponsor families financially through the program as each mother gets on her feet and finds stability.
Create a mentoring Church Team to support a homeless family emotionally and spiritually as they navigate from homelessness to wholeness, or join a team from our many partnering church communities. Schedule a meeting with our outreach pastor today.
