Help Bridges to Independence launch a successful Giving Tuesday campaign by becoming a Giving Tuesday Ambassador!

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a day to good and it has grown into a year-round global generosity movement. People will come together in a variety of ways to celebrate generosity, give back, and show kindness on November 30th, 2021. Help us inspire a wave of good by using your voice to help spread generosity!

How can you do that? You can create a peer-to-peer fundraising account with Bridges to Independence and set a goal of your choosing. Once you've done that, you can share the fundraiser with your network on social media. Bridges has a helpful toolkit with sample language and ideas for fun posts that we'll send you if you are interested in becoming a Giving Tuesday Ambassador!

You can also help Bridges by recording a 30 second to 1 minute video sharing why you are supporting Bridges Giving Tuesday Campaign. This will be used to help support our campaign, and there's more information on it in the toolkit.

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.
