Volunteers

Get Involved

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

Volunteers are the backbone of The Bridge. In 2020 The Bridge had 5,023 volunteer hours (COVID numbers). In 2019 we had 12,852 volunteer hours. As you can see, we would not be able to function without our wonderful volunteers! 

Volunteers also make a significant impact on our clients, when they show up to help someone they don’t know, have never met, and may never see again, it gives our clients hope, hope for a future without violence, hope for a better life for both them and their children. It begins to rebuild their belief and trust in humanity. 

The benefits to the volunteer are just as significant. It allows one to be part of their community, meet new people, make a difference, learn new skills, and even have FUN!
