The Mission of The Bridge to Hope: To help homeless families achieve spiritual wholeness and emotional, physical and financial well-being by overcoming self-defeating behaviors with Christ as our foundation.
The vision of The Bridge to Hope is to end homelessness One Family at a Time by equipping the church to take a vested interest in a single mother and her children in crisis, a family that has lost hope and direction.
The Bridge to Hope provides an avenue for churches to motivate their members to show Christ’s love and give hope to homeless women and their children, facilitating their recovery from homelessness. Part of this is through seeing that they get the essential education and/or training to get a job, so that within approximately two years they can become self-supporting. This is a concept of One Church One Family. Those who are called to step forward in faith to mentor the B2H family are what we call "a team". These teams of mentors work directly with their sponsored B2H family. All are under the direct supervision of the Director Any Seiser, and the case worker, Sallie Jarboe. The mothers live in apartments that are in close proximity to each other, rented by The Bridge to Hope. They have regular times of fellowship with their mentoring team.
Our target population is homeless single mothers (drug-free and alcohol-free) with minor children under the age of 10, who are physically and emotionally capable of becoming employed full-time. Currently, the number of families served is three. Historically, we have served approximately 8 - 12 families a year with the capacity to serve one family for up to 24 months. The Bridge to Hope’s ministry is presently limited to Phoenix, Arizona.
