We have a super exciting announcement!
For the first time in 30 years, we now have our own space to help the community even more. Even with all the amazing work we’ve been doing for the community over the last 30 years, we were operating part-time out of other people locations. We were able to positively change thousands of lives, imagine what we will do operating full-time from our own location while servicing other BRIDGE TO HOPE Service Hubs in the county.
Bridge To Hope provides services & programs designed to bridge the gap left to self-sufficiency for low-income and in-crisis families through a comprehensive set of programs and services, that raise the quality of life and standard of living, and to restore dignity, and hope to those in need.
Why We Started
Originally called Not By Bread Alone, this organization was founded in 1988 to supply cleaning and personal hygiene products to food stamp recipients. As we learned more about the effects of poverty on the family we began to expand into other areas of outreach. Our vision is to give people a way out instead of a handout; to be a source of inspiration and encouragement. We believe that if we help those in our community who have the least, we not only improve their quality of life, but we strengthen the whole community.
