Looking for an easy way to help those in need? Look no further! The families staying at Bridges to Independence's shelter are always in need of their pantry refilled, especially during this disruptive time.

Help Bridges keep our pantry stocked full of delicious food. You are given the freedom to go about collecting the food however is most comfortable for you!

If you are interested, we have a shopping list of suggested items that we'll send you. These items can be obtained while you shop at home via Amazon Smile, Peapod, or any service you use to get your groceries delivered; you can also grab some of these goods while you’re out doing your own grocery shopping; or you can organize your own food drive in your neighborhood and bring the items you receive to our shelter. The list will reflect the current needs of our shelter during this disruptive time.

If you have a drop off to do, we have social distance friendly bins outside of our shelter. All you have to do is put your donations in the bins and then call the number on the bin to let our shelter staff know a drop off has been made.

About Bridges To Independence

Location:

3103 9th Road North, Arlington, VA 22201, US

Mission Statement

Bridges to Independence leads individuals and families out of homelessness and into stable, independent futures. We offer a continuum of aid and support for all family members, helping them attain financial security and move forward into self-sufficiency. A private, nonprofit organization, Bridges has been working with and for families experiencing homelessness since 1985, when we were founded as the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless.

Description

In a nutshell, "what we do" is build bridges to independence for homeless families and families at risk of becoming homeless. Our bridges - our services - strengthen these families and provide them with the stability, skills, knowledge, and community networks to become self-sufficient. We offer supports for every family member - adults and children alike. Our short-term goal is to help individual clients right now. Long-term, we aim to break the inter-generational cycle of poverty by preparing today’s struggling kids to be tomorrow’s successful adults. From housing to financial literacy, from tutoring to youth development, from life skills to career counseling, we tailor a continuum of services. Some activities are required, some are optional, and some are just plain fun.
