Support The Bridge

Mr. N’s story is a powerful testament to the impact of The Bridge shelter in supporting survivors of domestic violence. After fleeing a dangerous relationship with his daughter’s mother, Mr. N found himself at our doorstep. With our children’s program, he received the essential childcare and advocacy services that enabled him to rebuild his life and that of his daughter. With the help of his advocate, Mr. N completed a safety assessment. He obtained employment thanks to our support with transportation needs. Because of the severity of his abuse, Mr. N received services from our high-risk team, who helped him apply for and obtain a protection order. But his journey towards a new life didn’t end there. Mr. N and his daughter achieved independent living with our permanent housing program. They continued receiving the support services they needed to thrive. At The Bridge, we believe that every survivor of domestic violence deserves a second chance, and we are honored to have been a part of Mr. N’s incredible journey.

Whatever your reason is, we need volunteers just like you to help us at The Bridge.
