At The Bridge, we strive to be more than just a handout, we want to be a hand up. We want to engage in meaningful conversations with our homeless and hurting community and look them in the eyes and let them know that we care. So many of us just want to feel like we belong, and that we're seen, and for our street community it's no different. If you don't feel comfortable engaging in conversation, we also have ways to help! You can work in our food line, in the clothing distribution, as a shower coordinator/usher (training required), cutting hair, or joining our prayer team.
