Mission Statement

The mission of The Bridge is to empower adults experiencing homelessness in Dallas with the tools to homeless recovery as they move into sustainable housing.

Description

Since opening in May 2008, The Bridge has established and leveraged key partnerships to ensure its Guests have access to a variety of services all coordinated at one facility that are essential to their comeback from homelessness.

Located in the Farmers Market District of downtown Dallas and open 24 hours daily, the multi-service campus offers basic needs services, along with access to healthcare, 3 meals daily, income alternatives, and long-term housing. This "one-stop" concept lessens the need for transportation and alleviates frustration experienced by homeless individuals when accessing services. Our highly trained staff coordinates all on-site services and advocates for those experiencing homelessness from the point of entry until they are placed in housing.

The Bridge is providing critical services to adults experiencing homelessness and engaging them on a path to homeless recovery every day.Thanks to our generous donors, volunteers and community partners, our Guests are finding their way back home.
